Florida GOP Chairman Lenny Curry to resign, pursue Jacksonville mayor bid

Republican Party of Florida Chairman Lenny Curry


Republican Party of Florida Chairman Lenny Curry will step down at the end of this month to pursue a 2015 campaign for mayor of Jacksonville, The Florida Times-Union reported and Florida Republican National Committeeman Peter Feaman confirmed.

The party will select a new chairman May 31 at its quarterly meeting in Tampa, Feaman said today.

Curry’s departure comes while RPOF plays a key role in Gov. Rick Scott‘s re-election efforts in one of the nation’s hottest governor’s races. Republican-turned-Democrat Charlie Crist, who was governor immediately before Scott, leads Scott in most polls.

    Maybe Charlie will take the job after he loses his comeback bid. Ha!

    Wrapped in the flag, and carrying his bible I bet. What a hateful caricature of Christianity if there ever was one. Jax deserves better than this man.

    Maybe you, FLMom. You’re the perfect person, so perfect you get to call others hateful. And not a hateful bone in your body.
