Wis­con­sin Gov. Scott Walk­er (R) “will take over this week as the chair of the” RGA. “There will be two con­tests for gov­ernor in 2017 dur­ing Walk­er’s one-year term. He also will be work­ing to lay the ground­work for 2018, when there are 36 con­tests.” (Mil­wau­kee Journ­al Sen­tinel)

RGA Chair­wo­man Susana Mar­tinez (R-NM) “helped GOP gov­ernors around the coun­try reach their highest num­bers since 1922. … Mar­tinez, who was elec­ted as RGA chair a year ago, was highly in­volved in the na­tion­al gubernat­ori­al elec­tions, trav­el­ing to sev­er­al dif­fer­ent states to stump for GOP can­did­ates and over­see­ing total RGA cam­paign spend­ing of more than $50 mil­lion on gubernat­ori­al elec­tions. The gov­ernor’s polit­ic­al ad­viser, Jay Mc­Cle­s­key, also played a prom­in­ent role in many of the gubernat­ori­al races around the coun­try. Mc­Cle­s­key Me­dia Strategies handled cam­paign mail­ers for the RGA in Ver­mont’s gubernat­ori­al elec­tion.” (Al­bur­queque Journ­al)
