CHARLESTON, WV (AP) — The first woman to lead West Virginia’s Republican Party has resigned to focus on her family.

Melody Potter announced her immediate resignation in a statement Monday night.

She was selected as state GOP chairwoman in 2018. Potter says both of her parents suffered strokes last year and require constant care.

State party co-chairman Roman Stauffer will serve as acting chairman until a replacement is selected.
