RALEIGH, N.C. — A former state GOP leader in Louisiana is now running day-to-day operations for the North Carolina Republican Party.
State party Chairman Michael Whatley announced this week that Jason Doré is the new executive director. He succeeds Jonathan Sink, who left the post after less than a year on the job to become the county government attorney for Gaston County.
Doré had two stints with the Republican Party of Louisiana, serving as executive director and political and communications director. He recently worked within the U.S. Small Business Administration in Washington.
Doré arrives during a presidential election year in which statewide races for Senate and governor also are on the ballot. And whichever party wins majorities in the General Assembly can control decisions over drawing disrtict boundaries used for the next 10 years.
