GOPAC Announces 2014 Class of Emerging Leaders


Today, GOPAC announced its 2014 Class of Emerging Leaders. These promising legislators, who were nominated by a member of GOPAC’s Legislative Leaders Advisory Board, were selected because of the potential and ability they have shown to have an impact in their state and the Republican Party.

“Our Emerging Leaders program is a yearlong initiative to coach and develop promising state legislators on how to be effective legislative and political leaders. With the 2014 Class showing a strong commitment to ideas leading to more private sector jobs and more effective government at lower costs, we look forward to assisting them with leadership training, policy seminars and interactive discussions at our Annual Emerging Leaders Summit,” said Chairman Frank Donatelli.
