Wyatt Named WV GOP Executive Director
A Texas native, Ward Wyatt first came to West Virginia to manage the Kent Leonhardt For Agriculture Commissioner race. Leonhardt, a first time candidate, came within mere points of defeating controversial liberal career politician Walt Helmick.
Previously, Wyatt served as an aide to Texas State Representative Stefani Carter, the first female, African-American Republican in the Texas House. Prior to moving to West Virginia, Wyatt served as a legislative aide to Representative Harvey Hilderbran, Chairman of the Texas House Ways & Means Committee.
Wyatt holds a degree in Government and Business from the University of Texas - Austin.
Wyatt's father, the Hon. Joseph P. Wyatt, Jr, enjoyed a long career in public service capped by serving as United States Congressman from Texas's 14th District.
"I am honored with the opportunity to help Chairman Conrad Lucas and the West Virginia Republican Party elect a Republican to the United States Senate and gain a Republican majority in the West Virginia House of Delegates for the first time since 1928," said Wyatt. "I appreciate the Chairman's confidence in me to oversee the day to day operations of the WVGOP. The future begins now and I'm excited to bring my energy and skill set to assist Chairman Lucas in strengthening the West Virginia Republican Party so we can accomplish our goals for 2014."
