File this as another sign of the changing nature of the Republican party.

Steve Dupri — the longtime Republican National Committee (RNC) member from New Hampshire — Saturday was defeated as he attempted to win a fifth four-year term of the representation of his home state on the national committee.

Dupri campaigns (McCain won — the former long-time state Republican party Chairman, who was a close friend of John McCain and a trust N. H., and a national consultant, the senator from Arizona’s 2000 and 2008 presidential-worthy-the N. H. primary in his two White house bids) — was defeated, the grassroots activist and the Hillsborough County Republican chair Chris Ager of Amherst, N. H.

The vote took place today at a meeting of the New Hampshire Republican State Committee. The secret ballot votes are the sums of private by government officials, but sources were kept at a Fox News said it was a close vote.

Dupri had the backing of large parts of the state, the GOP establishment, including popular Republican Gov. Chris Sununu. And Dupri-who had served on the RNC’s all the important rules Committee for much of his 16-year tenure in the national Committee — was known for his tireless efforts to ensure that the state’s first-in-the-nation presidential primary remained the first in the GOP presidential nomination calendar. This is a crucial part of his job as an RNC Committee member. And to keep up the fight, the state can be the primary status as the first-in-the-nation, harder than ever before.


But none of that was obvious enough, as the grassroots conservatives in the state don’t trust Dupri. She wondered, if he asks enough loyalty to the President Trump and his conservative values. (Dupri supports the right to abortion.)

After the vote, Dupri resigned immediately from his post, instead of waiting until his four-year term ends after the Republican National Convention in August.
