He was previously executive director of the Virginia GOP, deputy campaign manager for former Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell (R), RNC national coalitions director, and campaign manager for Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-VA 06).
RGA Chairman Pete Ricketts: "Dave Rexrode has immense experience in electing Republican governors, and the RGA is fortunate to have such a bright and talented individual leading the organization,” said RGA Chairman Governor Pete Ricketts. “Dave is one of the top political strategists for our party, and his expertise will be a crucial asset to electing Republican governors and continuing the RGA’s standing as the most effective political organization in America."
