Republican Party Chair Jeff Frederick Ousted 57 – 18

As many as 10 charges were in a letter justifying the removal of Jeff Frederick as Republican Party of Virginia Chairman. Congressman Bob Goodlatte and Eric Cantor were among those who signed the letter. The AP at The Roanoke-Times Dispatch and Bearingdrift have the complete letter.

Also interesting posts from Spank That Monkey and Not Larry Sabato.

Mike Thomas will take over as party chair.
