Gruters campaigns for state chairmanship

by: Robin Roy City Editor

The chairman of the Republican Party of Sarasota County has announced his intention to run for state party chairman.

Joe Gruters has begun a two-week tour of all 67 Florida counties to garner support.

“I have a tremendous desire to duplicate the success that we have achieved in Sarasota throughout the state,” he said.

Gruters hopes to ride the momentum from the November election that saw every Republican on the county’s ballot win his race. It was a first for Sarasota County.

The Republican Party chairman and committee members from each county will vote Jan. 15 for the new Republican Party of Florida chairman. The governor and Republican house and senate members also have votes.

So far, Gruters, 33, is the only candidate under age 55.
