Fisher re-elected to national Republican committee

GREENSBORO — Dr. Ada M. Fisher of Salisbury has been re-elected as N.C. Republican National Committeewoman.
She was first elected committeewoman to represent the state GOP in 2008.
At the weekend’s N.C. GOP Convention in Raleigh, Fisher nominated herself for the position, as she had in 2008.
She said her “fiery oratory … was inspirational” and led to her collecting 60 percent of the vote. She supports former Mass. Gov. Mitt Romney for president and former Charlotte Mayor Pat McCrory for N.C. governor “without equivocation,” she said.
Fisher is the first and only black female serving along with another African-American, Glen McCall of South Carolina, as members of the Republican National Committee.
Fisher has been a registered Republican for more than 40 years. She served on the Salisbury Board of Education and previously ran on the party’s ticket for the U.S. Senate, the U.S. House and the N.C. House 77th District.
Fisher said she has established a record of making the RNC accountable for its finances and fairness, insuring that candidates for any national or state race were treated fairly.
She also touted her ability to help hold together a coalition of Libertarians, Ron Paul supporters, Tea Partiers, conservatives and others.
She said she also was behind efforts to expand the presidential debates, which helped to keep North Carolina in play for the presidential election process.
A member of the N.C. Federation of Republican Women, Fisher also was a charter member of the Republican Jewish Alliance, Charlotte Chapter; the N.C. Republican Hispanic Alliance; and is an advocate among the African-American Republicans statewide and nationally.
Fisher also touted a book she hopes to soon publish, “Common Sense Conservative Prescription Solutions for What Ails Us.” She said, “We must make the case for why people should vote for the Republicans.”
She cited the need to grow the party among minorities and the young.
State Rep. David Lewis of Dunn also was re-elected as the N.C. Republican National Committeeman.
Speakers at the state GOP Convention included Donald Trump, Gov. Tim Pawlenty and Texas Gov. Rick Perry.
The convention drew roughly 1,800 people, of whom 1,268 were delegates, with one alternate.
