While most reorganization of state parties takes place following the election of state committee members on the presidential primary ballot, state law requires that chairpersons be elected following the November election. Presumably this is to avoid having a new chair take over in the middle of an election calendar. Incumbent Chair Gus Bickford is seeking re-election, but he has two challengers: Mike Lake, who sought our nominations for Auditor in 2010 and Lt. Governor in 2014; and Bob Massie, who was our nominee for Lt. Governor in 1994 and sought our nomination for Governor in 2018.
