RSLC Announces Senior Staff For 2021-2022 Cycle

Dee Duncan To Serve As President, Edith Jorge-Tuñon To Serve As Deputy Executive Director

The Republican State Leadership Committee (RSLC) today announced its senior leadership team for the 2021-2022 election cycle, as the committee prepares to build upon its historic growth last year when it defended all 59 Republican-led legislative chambers, flipped at least 2 more, and added 2 Republican trifectas. A majority of the newly-announced senior staff played pivotal roles in reaching that success and will be returning to RSLC to help provide state Republicans the resources they need to keep winning.

Incoming RSLC President Dee Duncan said of the announcement, “Overcoming more than a half of a billion dollars in Democratic state spending last year and a historically complex political climate to successfully defend all of our Republican majorities was an extraordinary feat, but we know the fight remains ahead of us. State Democrats in this upcoming election cycle will again be well-funded and well-organized — and the team of experts we’ve assembled is prepared to meet that challenge. I am confident that this group will help provide state Republicans with the resources they need to win elections and best serve the people of their states.”

“State Republicans’ success last year laid the groundwork for our Party to be successful for the next decade. I was exceptionally proud to fight alongside the RSLC team and I am thrilled that many are returning to help bring the committee to even greater heights,” added outgoing RLSC President Austin Chambers. “These driven operatives, along with the fantastic new talent we’ve recruited to join the team, will ensure we continue to make winning a habit at the RSLC, grow our bench of dynamic future Republican leaders, and play a key role in charting a course for the future of the conservative movement.”
