NRCC Rounds Out Leadership Team

January 14, 2011

The National Republican Congressional Committee has named its deputy chairman and eight vice chairmen, completing its leadership team, NRCC sources confirm.

NRCC Chair Pete Sessions (Texas) has brought back Rep. Greg Walden (R-Ore.) as deputy chairman. Walden was part of Sessions' team in 2010 when Republicans gained 63 seats in the House.

For vice chairmen, Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) will return to lead the committee's efforts to lead interest group outreach. And Georgia Rep. Lynn Westmoreland (R) will stay at the helm of the NRCC's redistricting efforts.

Sessions has also brought on board a freshman Republican -- Tennessee Rep. Diane Black (R) -- to lead his communications efforts.

Because of its gains in 2010, the NRCC faces significant challenges in 2012. Chief among them will be defending the 87 new members of the Republican caucus. To that end, the NRCC will emphasize its Patriot program, which identifies potentially vulnerable incumbents and helps them organize their re-election bids early. That program will be led by Sessions and Walden.

In addition to Walden, Nunes, Westmoreland and Black, the other vice chairmen and their focuses are: Reps. Vern Buchanan (Fla.), finances; Virginia Foxx (N.C.), grassroots; Ed Royce, regional chair coordinator; Steve Scalise (La.), recruitment; and John Shimkus (Ill.), mentoring.

This completes the NRCC's leadership team for the cycle. The NRCC has not, however, announced who will be its regional chairs for 2012.
