The Executive Director of the New Hampshire Republican Party confirmed to the Globe that he has submitted his resignation and plans to leave his post next month.
His resignation comes amid a fight in the party over who would become the next chairman. The mid-term elections were the worst results in state history for Republicans, and the current chairman announced last week that he would not seek re-election.
Andy Leach, the current executive director, told members of the party’s executive committee at a holiday party Tuesday night that he would voluntarily step down so that a new chairman could make a fresh start.
“I am not sure what I will be doing when I leave, but this needed to be done,” Leach said in an interview.
