JJ Summerell has resigned as chair of the Libertarian Party of North Carolina to focus on his run for U.S. House District 1. The Executive Committee appointed Vice Chair Brian Irving to fill the vacancy.
“I intend to run a serious campaign to offer the residents of the district a clear choice in November,” Summerell said in his resignation letter. “This means I will not be able to devote the time and energy required by my duties as party chair.”
“It has been an honor and a pleasure to serve the Libertarian Party for the past five years. I look forward to working with you in the future as U.S. Congressman from North Carolina's First District.”
