Alabama GOP Chair to Step Down When Term Ends

MONTGOMERY, Ala., Nov. 22, 2006 --  Alabama GOP Party Chairman Twinkle Andress Cavanaugh has announced she will step down as chair of the party when her term ends in February. 

"I will continue to serve as an active, involved and hands-on chairman until my term ends in February."

Cavanaugh says Governor Riley has asked her to serve in his upcoming second term.

"I look forward to working with Governor Riley in making his vision for tax cuts for Alabama families and the other parts of Plan 2010 a reality," says Cavanaugh.  "In addition to working with Governor Riley and his world-class team, I look forward to spending more time with my family, being more involved with my church and more active in my community."

She says, "Alabama will soon be a solid red state on both the state and national levels."

Alabama Representative Mike Hubbard has announced his candidacy for the position.

In a letter to the members of the Alabama GOP's executive committee Hubbard stated,"I want to build on our solid foundation and create a stronger, more unified Republican Party in Alabama.  In the Legislature, the GOP has developed strength through our unity, and I believe we can do the same thing with the state's Republican Party."

"I believe that if we can continue to rally around what makes us Republicans-strong conservative values, faith and family, and an accountable, efficient government-there is no limit to what we will accomplish," Hubbard added. "There are clear differences between the Republican and Democrat parties, and I intend to educate voters on those differences."

And Governor Riley in a letter to the GOP's executive committee says he asked Hubbard to run for the position.

"...I have asked Rep. Mike Hubbard of Auburn to run for Chairman of the Alabama Republican Party.  Mike has been one of my strongest allies in the Legislature, where he helped usher through historic tax cuts, pro-life legislation, and other initiatives that reflect our party's conservative values.  His ability to unite House Republicans is precisely why we were able to pass groundbreaking legislation even though we were in the minority.

Mike is a loyal Republican activist.  Just this past year, he led an effort to raise more than $900,000 for the party. He has also been very active in both the State Executive Committee and the Lee County Executive Committee.  If anyone knows how important the County party leaders are, it is Mike."
