(The Center Square) — South Carolina Lt. Governor Pamela Evette is chairing the Republican Lieutenant Governors Association’s 2024 Executive Committee.

Utah Lt. Governor Deidre Henderson will serve as the vice chair, while Nevada Lt. Governor Stavros Anthony will serve as the group’s finance chair. Florida’s Jeanette Nuñez, Indiana’s Suzanne Crouch, Iowa’s Adam Gregg, Ohio’s Jon Husted and Oklahoma’s Matt Pinnell will also serve on the committee.

“I am grateful to have the support of my fellow Republican Lieutenant Governors as I take on this critical position as Chair of the RLGA alongside the entire executive committee,” Evette, elected to her post in 2018, said in a statement. “As Chair of the RLGA in 2024, it is imperative that we remain steadfast in our commitment to electing conservative leaders who will push back on the devastating policies coming out of Washington D.C. from Joe Biden and his allies.”

The group is one of four caucuses under the Republican State Leadership Committee, which boasted of spending $300,000 to help elect Anthony in 2022 and flip the Nevada seat from Democrat to Republican. The group is prioritizing defending the state’s lieutenant governors, as nine will be on the ballot in November.

In a statement, Anthony said the RLGA would be “laser-focused on protecting all of our Lieutenant Governors against the onslaught of money pouring in from national outside liberal spending groups in key battleground states across the country.”
