If you had to pick between Eric Herr and John Whitbeck to become the next Chairman of the Republican Party of Virginia, would that decision be as difficult for you as it would be for me? That indeed looks to be the decision the State Central Committee will have to make at their January meeting as they replace Pat Mullins, who has announced he will step down as soon as a replacement is found. Fortunately, either of these gentlemen will likely do a great job filling Pat’s shoes.
Mullins has really done an outstanding job as Chairman during his tenure. RPV Chairman is a really hard job and about all the results you tend to get from it are endless gripes and complaints. About the best the rest of us could hope for is that the duties of that position are discharged with fairness and equity, and Mullins has consistently excelled at both. Not many of his predecessors mastered this, so Mullins has set a really high standard for whoever will succeed him.
Fortunately between these two candidates, I’m quite confident meeting that bar won’t be a problem. Choosing between them, well, that’s quite a bit more challenging.
