Ed Martin named chairman of Missouri Victory 2012

(From the Missouri Republican Party)

The Missouri Republican Party and Republican National Committee announced today that Ed Martin, Republican candidate for Missouri Attorney General, will serve as chairman of the Missouri Victory 2012 Campaign.

“Ed Martin is focused, energetic, and committed to everything he does,” said David Cole, Chairman of the Missouri Republican. “He is exactly the kind of leader Republicans need in Missouri during this crucial election year.  I am confident his leadership, along with that of honorary Chairman Senator Roy Blunt and our Victory Co-Chairs, will help us achieve conservative victories up and down the ballot all across Missouri.”
Ed is currently running to replace ‘Obama’s lawyer’ Chris Koster as Missouri Attorney General.  Prior to this campaign, in 2010, he took on Russ Carnahan in a race that was never supposed to be competitive—but thanks to his hard work, he came within a handful of votes of victory.  Martin has also served as an expert for youth in the Vatican, director of the Human Rights Office for the Archdiocese of St. Louis, lawyer in private practice, Chairman of the St. Louis Board of Election Commissioners, and Chief of Staff to Governor Matt Blunt.

“We are excited to have Ed Martin on our team to lead our Victory 2012 effort,” said Reince Priebus, Chairman of the Republican National Committee.  “As always, Missouri is a critical state in our effort to defeat Barack Obama, retake control of the U.S. Senate, and send a Republican to the Governor’s Mansion.  Ed is relentless and tenacious, and he understands the importance of the grassroots—exactly the qualities that will lead us to victory in November.”

“I am grateful for the opportunity to be Missouri Victory chairman in this critically important election year,” said Martin.  “The importance of the choices we will make this November cannot be overstated. The choice in 2012 is nothing less than a decision between smaller government and more freedom, or big government and less freedom by staying on the path of failure charted by Barack Obama and Claire McCaskill in Washington as well as Jay Nixon and Chris Koster in Missouri. I will do everything I can as Victory chairman to promote the cause of freedom and help ensure Republican victories in November.”

Martin will be joined by Victory 2012 Executive Director Lane Koch and honorary Chairman Blunt.  In addition, the following Victory Co-Chairs were also announced:

Congresswoman Jo Ann Emerson
Congressman Sam Graves
Congresswoman Vicky Hartzler
Congressman Billy Long
Congressman Blaine Luetkemeyer
Lt. Governor Peter Kinder
Auditor Tom Schweich
