(WTNH) — The youngest and longest-serving state Republican Party Chairman J.R. Romano tells News 8 he will not be seeking reelection.

On Tuesday, Republican Party Chairman J.R. Romano tells News 8 that “it’s time for a new challenge” and will not be seeking reelection.

“I’ve been doing this going on six years. It’s just time. I’m ready for a new challenge, I have a couple of opportunities. I don’t think I’ll go far. I’m excited,” Romano said.

Democratic State Party Chairwoman Nancy DiNardo responded, “I wish JR well. But let’s keep our focus on the election that matters to all Americans, the one on November 3.”

Romano’s term ends June 2021. He says Senate Leader Len Fasano’s name is being floated as a successor.
