After another successful election cycle, Devaney seeks re-election as GOP chair

Thursday, November 8, 2012 at 4:54pm

After presiding over two of the most successful election cycles in the party’s history, Tennessee Republican Party chairman Chris Devaney said Thursday he’d like to come back for more.

The news comes two days after Republicans obtained unprecedented majorities in both chambers of the state legislature, an accomplishment Devaney cited in a letter announcing his intention to run for re-election as chairman to members of the party’s executive committee.

“These wins were due to the fact that Republicans have a superior message, great volunteers and donors, good candidates, and a Republican Party that works well with our elected leadership,” Devaney wrote, after a summary of the GOP’s election night dominance in the state. “Our Party is strong because we have consistently had good leadership at the State Party and have built on the successes over the years.”

Devaney, who has previously served as the party’s executive director and worked on successful U.S. Senate campaigns for Fred Thompson and Bob Corker, was first elected party chairman in May 2009 to finish out the term of Robin Smith who left the post to pursue a congressional bid. Devaney was re-elected in 2010, on the heels of a wave election for Republicans in Tennessee and across the country.

With Devaney at the party’s helm, Republicans have gained 20 states in the state House, seven in the state Senate and three in the congressional delegation.

Devaney has done a good job this year and deserves to stay on for a while longer.
Might be wise for the conservatives to ask of him if he would remain neutral in
a primary race for Alexander's seat if a viable candidate decides to challenge.
