On June 6, 2015 in Raleigh, delegates to the 2015 North Carolina Republican State Convention elected Michele Nix as the next Vice Chairman of the state Republican Party (NCGOP). She is currently the Chairman of the Lenoir County Republican Party and will serve along with newly elected NCGOP Chairman Hasan Harnett.
“The Republican Party needs those in leadership who can and will attract like-minded individuals from all walks of life, including minorities, women and youth,” said Chairman Harnett. “Teamwork makes the dream work, and Michele and I will work together to grow the party and ensure a Republican victory in 2016.”
On Saturday, June 6, 2015, the delegates to the 2015 North Carolina Republican State Convention elected Hasan Harnett as the next chairman of the state Republican Party (NCGOP). Outgoing Chairman Claude Pope released the following statement after today’s vote:
“Congratulations to Hasan Harnett for his election as the new chairman of the North Carolina Republican Party. As a former campaign manager and outreach director, Hasan has the right experience to raise the funds necessary to grow our grassroots army and lead our party to even greater electoral victories. I want to thank all of the candidates who were nominated for this very important position, and I am confident that under Hasan’s leadership, the North Carolina Republican Party will continue forward with new energy and unity to defeat the Hillary Clinton-Roy Cooper machine in 2016.
“Thanks to the strength of our party and our grassroots supporters, North Carolina now has a Republican governor, two U.S. Senators, ten out of thirteen U.S. House seats and both chambers of the General Assembly.
“I want to thank the NCGOP staff and all of the supporters of the North Carolina Republican Party who have donated their time and money to make this all possible. But most of all, I want to thank the grassroots, who do the hard work on the ground to get out the vote for our Republican candidates at all levels. Serving as NCGOP chairman has been a great honor, but I look forward to returning to Bald Head Island to my wife, family and business.”
