WASHINGTON (January 22, 2019) — The Republican State Leadership Committee (RSLC) announced that Melanie Pfeiffenberger will serve as the Executive Director for the Republican Legislative Campaign Committee (RLCC) for the 2019-2020 cycle.
“Melanie has been a valuable member of the RSLC organization since joining our team in 2017. As the Deputy Director of the RLCC during the 2017-2018 election cycle, Melanie helped raise over $21 million for the committee,” RSLC President Matt Walter said. “Her promotion to the Executive Director role will allow her to continue to grow and advance the relationships she has built with legislative leaders and our supporters heading into the 2020 presidential cycle.”
“As the Chairwoman for the RLCC in 2018, I formed a close relationship with Melanie and the rest of the fundraising team and I’m thrilled she will be taking the helm of the committee in what will be a crucial cycle for Republican state legislators,” Iowa Speaker of the House Linda Upmeyer added. “Her attention to detail, warm personality, and forward-thinking vision for the committee made my role as Chairwoman significantly easier and I’m confident these qualities will serve her well in her new role.”
The RSLC also announced that Malcolm Richards will be promoted to Associate Director for the RLCC for the 2019-2020 cycle.
Following the 2018 election cycle, Republicans control 62 of 99 legislative chambers in the country and the RSLC has been integral to the Republican resurgence at the state level since the 2010 midterm elections.
The Republican State Leadership Committee (RSLC) is the largest caucus of Republican state leaders in the country and the only national organization whose mission is to elect Republicans to multiple down-ballot, state-level offices. Since 2002, the RSLC has been working to elect candidates to the offices of lieutenant governor, secretary of state, state legislator, the judiciary and other down-ticket races. State-level Republicans maintain 62 of 99 legislative chamber majorities across the country, hold 25 lieutenant governor seats, and control 28 secretary of state offices.
