Abernathy Exiting W.Va. & Its GOP

Gary Abernathy, executive director of the state Republican Party, has announced that he is leaving that post and West Virginia at the end of the month, The Associated Press and others report.

The veteran political operative "says he wants to spend more time with his family in Ohio," AP reported.

Abernathy had held that party job earlier in the decade, and his January re-hiring was not universally welcomed by state Republicans.

Others with coverage include WSAZ-TV and The Charleston Gazette as well as MetroNews, which also offers audio.
