Chairman Robert Graham Announces 2014 Victory Team

Experience, Energy Key to GOP Victories in 2014

PHOENIXArizona Republican Party Chairman Robert Graham today announced the team he assembled to help him execute his plans for Republican victories in Arizona in 2014.

Gretchen Conger Martinez will serve as Chief of Staff, having oversight of all finances and operations. Gretchen recently managed the successful $2 million statewide effort to defeat Proposition 204, a proposed permanent sales tax increase. Her success in raising money, managing logistics and a proven ability to execute puts her in a perfect position to help the party's ongoing fight for limited government.

Graham said of Martinez, "Gretchen's performance in the past election has been outstanding, and I'm excited to see her interest in helping our party continue the fight for freedom and fiscal responsibility. She not only has a lot of the energy we so desperately need, we're also lucky to have her dedication and proven track record of winning."

Chad Heywood will serve as the party's Executive Director. Chad has experience as a federal campaign field director and manager, grassroots leader and precinct committeeman, as well as an elected Republican legislative district chairman. Heywood recently worked on campaigns to successfully oppose Proposition 121 and 204, and has helped numerous Republicans win or retain seats in the Arizona House of Representatives.

Graham said of Heywood, "Chad Heywood is a brilliant strategist and and knows how to deliver victory. His work ethic is exceptional and he truly has a great ability to bring people together for the good of our party. I am happy to have him helping me and using his numerous skills to ensure our conservative candidates achieve victory."

Tim Sifert will continue as Communications Director, and Laddie Shane will serve as Graham's Executive Assistant.
