Lee County Republican Party Chairman Jim Womack has announced he will challenge Robin Hayes in his bid for re-election as Chairman of the North Carolina Republican Party.
Chairman Womack is a West Point graduate, a career U.S. Army officer, and an Information Technology Executive from Sanford, North Carolina. He has been politically active in North Carolina for the past ten years. He served as a Lee County Commissioner from 2010-2014 and served on the state’s Mining and Energy Commission from 2012-15, chairing the organization from 2012-14.
Chairman Womack has been a grass roots activist in the NCGOP and has authored several resolutions and platform changes seeking to decentralize the power and authority of the GOP’s Central Committee, putting control of the party back into the hands of the Republican base. Womack is advocating top-to-bottom reform of the party and a complete reworking of the NCGOP’s Plan of Organization.
