Vance stepping down

What a pity:
State Republican Party Chairman Chris Vance said today he is stepping down to pursue a job in the private sector.

Vance, a former state legislator who has been GOP chairman since 2001, would not reveal his future employer.

He said his decision was prompted by family concerns, particularly his two children, who are nearing college age.

"College is now looking me right in the face, and paying for college," Vance said. "My entire adult life I have gone from one temporary political job to another. Being chairman has been tremendous, but it is not a job you retire from."
Now the Republicans are electing a new chairman as well.
