With the election of DC GOP Chairman Cunningham, the Advisory Council was reinstated after a two year period of dormancy. The Advisory Council serves as the chief fundraising mechanism for the party for the purposes of candidate recruitment and support, Republican outreach and engagement, and for general operating expenses.
