Michigan House Speaker Lee Chatfield (R-Levering) was announced Monday as the new co-chair of the Republican Legislative Campaign Committee (RLCC), a caucus of the national Republican State Leadership Committee (RSLC) dedicated to seeing the GOP gain and hold majority control of state legislatures across the country.
Chatfield previously served as the co-vice chairman of the RLCC Executive Committee. He criticized unnamed “radical, liberal organizations” for trying to flip state legislatures.
“Meanwhile, Republican state leadership is having a tremendous positive impact in the states where we have the majority. No amount of liberal spending will stop Republicans from doing everything we can to win up-and-down the ballot this November,” Chatfield said in a statement.
Chatfield will co-chair the RLCC alongside former Indiana House Speaker Brian Bosma, who retired last week, but will remain on the RSLC. Chatfield is term-limited from the Michigan House this year.
“Speaker Chatfield leads by example – and that is why he is a great choice to lead the RLCC to victory,” RSLC President Austin Chambers. “… Everything is on the line this election cycle, and we remain laser-focused on supporting Republican candidates and raising the resources required to win in November.”
