The Republican Party Facebook page brings news that Jonelle Fulmer of Fort Smith will succeed Doyle Webb as chair of the Arkansas Republican Party.
She was elected at a state committee meeting in Benton. An article this morning in the D-G said the other candidate was Rev. Iver Jackson, president of the party’s African American Coalition.
Webb served 12 years and wasn’t eligible for another term. He is running for co-chair of the Republican National Committee.
Fulmer is a member of the Republican National Committee and has worked in political campaigns and political work since at least 1996 when she worked for Asa Hutchinson’s campaign for Congress.
