On its website, the Republican Party of Virginia's 2012 coordinated committee states that it will "defeat President Obama, Tim Kaine, and congressional Democrats" across the battleground state by raising money and rallying the grassroots. It can now count on an official Fox News platform for further help in those efforts.
Fox News has hired Pete Snyder, the chairman of Virginia Victory 2012, as its newest on-air contributor. Snyder made his first official appearance yesterday on Fox & Friends, where he repeated Republican platitudes about President Obama and his policies.
Snyder's hiring by the network doesn't appear to have affected his Republican Party position, as Virginia Victory still lists him as its chairman and his Twitter bio states he's a "Fox News Contributor, Chairman of Virginia Victory 2012."
Snyder's capital investment firm announced the hiring in a press release, which quoted him as saying he's "long admired Roger Ailes and his pioneering vision and look forward to working with him and the entire Fox News team during the most important election of our lifetimes." The release added that "Virginia is considered by many political observers to be the #1 battleground state in the upcoming presidential election, and Snyder is overseeing the Republicans' efforts in the Commonwealth."
