CHARLESTON, WV -

William Ward Wyatt has been hired as the West Virginia Republican Party's executive director. Wyatt began working in the position before the start of the legislative session last month.

A Texas native, Wyatt first came to West Virginia to manage Kent Leonhardt's race for agriculture commissioner. Leonhardt, a first-time candidate, lost to Democrat Walt Helmick.

Previously, Wyatt served as an aide to Texas State Rep. Stefani Carter, the first female African-American Republican in the Texas House. 

Before moving to West Virginia, he served as a legislative aide to Rep. Harvey Hilderbran, chairman of the Texas House Ways and Means Committee.

Wyatt has a degree in government and business from the University of Texas at Austin.
