The man in charge of ensuring impartial elections in Georgia told his fellow GOP secretaries of state that he is looking forward to helping Republicans win elections across the nation in 2014.

On Thursday, Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp was named chairman of the Republican Secretaries of State Committee (RSSC). 

“With 18 seats to defend, and the opportunity to go on offense in Nevada, Arizona, Colorado and Iowa, the RSSC will be making an impact across the country,” Kemp said in a statement. “I look forward to working with these great leaders to win elections and put into place policies that instill confidence and integrity in our voting process.”

Matt Walter, president of the Republican State Leadership Committee, said, “The RSSC begins 2014 well positioned. With both strong fundraising and a great team of leaders ,our secretaries will expand their caucus and keep elections fair.”

Serving with Kemp on the RSSC’s 2014 executive committee are:

  • Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett
  • Colorado Secretary of State Scott Gessler
  • Iowa Secretary of State Matt Schultz
  • New Mexico Secretary of State Dianna Duran
  • Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted
  • Tennessee Secretary of State Tre Hargett
  • Washington Secretary of State Kim Wyman

The RSSC says its goal is to elect Republican secretaries of state across the country.


  1. Richard says:

    Before he spends too much time on National Republican business, he needs to get his house in order. There have been more problems with the SOS website since his election than all the previous SOS’s terms combined. Based on his performance so far, he wouldn’t get my vote again.

  2. Doug Deal says:

    You guys are way off and are being completely unfair. I highly doubt he will be responsible for any mission critical tasks that can be mishandled.

    One day, though, we’ll have 2013 election data. Of course we might have that now, but I stopped looking after 3 months.
