|RGA Congratulates George Lemieux|
Republican Governors Association Chairman Haley Barbour congratulated RGA National Finance Co-Chairman George LeMieux on being appointed U.S. Senator today.
"From serving as a gubernatorial chief of staff to taking on a leadership role with the RGA, George has been a friend and ally to Republican governors for a long time,” Governor Barbour said. “He will be missed, but we are fortunate to have him take on this important position at such a pivotal time for our country."
“George will bring a solid perspective to the United States Senate,” continued Barbour. “With a deep background in state government, George understands the issues facing Florida and how decisions made in Washington, D.C. will impact the state.”
LeMieux previously served as the Deputy Attorney General for the state of Florida and as Chief of Staff for Governor Charlie Crist.
