King won't seek re-election to state GOP leadership

The N.C. Republican Party will see a complete leadership change at the top. GOP Vice-Chairman Wayne King announced Monday he would not seek re-election at the party's June convention. Chairman Robin Hayes previously announced he would step down.

“I am confident that the future is very bright for our party," King said in a statement. "Our new governor and our Republican majorities in the state House and state Senate are charting a new conservative vision for our state that will protect our freedoms, transform our economy and return our state to prosperity."

King recently joined Congressman Mark Meadows' office as a senior advisor. Gov. Pat McCrory is backing former Wake County GOP Chairman Claude Pope to lead the party. The list of candidates for vice-chairman is wide open. One announced candidate is former state Rep. Glen Bradley.
