The Republican State Leadership Committee (RSLC) is a national organization "whose mission is electing Republicans to the office of attorney general, lieutenant governor, secretary of state and legislator." It concentrates on candidate recruitment and support.[1]

History

The RSLC was founded in 2002 in response to increasing competitiveness in down ballot races. Since its inception, it has grown to be the largest Republican organization that focuses on state level politics.[1]

Leadership

Ed Gillespie has been the chairman of the RSLC since 2010. Chris Jankowski serves as RSLC President.[2]

2014 elections

On April 29, the Republican State Leadership Committee announced a Judicial Fairness Initiative, through which they aim to back conservative judges in the 2014 elections.[3] The announcement came on the heels of a $650,000 donation to the group Justice for All North Carolina, which aired attack ads against Justice Robin Hudson of the North Carolina Supreme Court. Hudson, a Democrat seeking re-election in 2014, faced two Republicans in the May 6 primary--Eric Lee Levinson and Jeanette Kathleen Doran. [4][5][6] For more information, see North Carolina Supreme Court elections, 2014 on Judgepedia.

As of December 2013, there was no other data available on contributions to candidates in the 2014 election cycle.[7]

2012 elections

The RSLC contributed $977,500 in the 2012 election cycle: $2,500 to candidates, $400,000 to 527 committees and $500,000 to outside spending groups.[7]
