Corbett again on RGA exec team

Published by Laura Olson on .

Gov. Tom Corbett will remain on the Republican Governors Association's eight-member executive committee, the group announced in a news release.

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal will chair the association has it heads into its next electoral cycle, with Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker as vice-chair.

The group is holding its annual meeting this week in Las Vegas, coming off of an election that brought the number of Republican governors to 30 -- the highest in 12 years.

Corbett's name stands out somewhat from the rest of the leadership team, given his low-profile at national events.

The remainder of the team -- Rick Scott (Florida), Chris Christie (New Jersey), Susana Martinez (New Mexico), Nikki Haley (South Carolina), and Bob McDonnell (Virginia) -- all held speaking slots at the Republican National Convention in August (though Scott had to tend to storm duties instead as Tropical Storm Isaac approached).

That doesn't mean Corbett hasn't pitched in in other ways. He did go campaign in New Hampshire for GOP gubernatorial candidate Ovide Lamontagne.

UPDATE: Corbett and most of the team also appear to have made the 2011-12 panel. An earlier search turned up this list dated for 2011 but not this list for 2011-12.
