HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) _ Christopher Healy, chairman of the Connecticut Republicans, says he plans to inform the GOP that he will not seek another term as the party’s leader.
Healy was scheduled to make the announcement at a Tuesday evening event.
Chairman since January 2007, the 53-year-old said it’s time for new leadership. Healy also said he did not want a public battle for the chairmanship. Healy is facing several challengers.
Healy says he and his team have built a strong foundation for Republican victories this year, next year and beyond. He says they made strides in connecting with party members through social media.
The 72 members of the Republican State Central Committee are scheduled to meet on June 28 to choose party leaders.
The GOP did not win any constitutional offices in 2010.
