Memphis GOP Chairman Seeks New Term

Chairman Justin Joy of the Shelby County Republican Party will seek another term at the March 24 party convention. Joy was first elected chairman at the 2011 party convention where he ran unopposed. “Really from the national level all the way down to the local county level, frankly the Republican Party needs to grow,” Joy told the Memphis Daily News. “What I would like to see happen here in Shelby County is for the Republican Party to continue to grow not just for the purpose of winning elections, but for strengthening the party.”
