Delegates to the Alaska Republican convention voted 167 to 133 to table, or kill, a resolution calling on state party chairman Randy Ruedrich to step down. Reform minded Republicans were hoping for new leadership in the wake of the conviction of three former state legislators in an oil bribery scandal.
Ruedrich was fined $12,000 for engaging in partisan activity while on the job as an Alaska Oil and Gas Commission member, the AP reports.
He said he would have ignored the resolution, even if it had passed. "Based on the fact that you asked me to serve for four years last year, I will reject that resolution and plan to stay and work with all you folks,'' Ruedrich said as delegates cast votes.
