State Republican Party Chair Resigns This Morning

October 22, 2003 - Posted at 11:39 p.m. CDT

LITTLE ROCK, AR - Marty Ryall resigned this morning as chairman of the Arkansas Republican Party.

The move comes as the Federal Election Commission is investigating state party records.  An audit by the F.E.C. found the party misstated three measures in 1999 and 2000, overall contributions, spending and cash on hand.

The state Republican steering committee met this morning and Ryall handed in his resignation from the job that paid $72,000 per year.  Ryall will leave at the end of the month.  Republican State Senator Gunner Delay will handle the job until December 6, when the party will meet to vote on a new chairman.

The F.E.C. audit found the party spent $331,021 more than the law allowed in support of the 2000 campaign of Republican Jay Dickey.  Dickey was unseated by Democrat Mike Ross in a close race for the Fourth Congressional seat.
