PALM BEACH COUNTY, FL -- The Florida Republican Party says it is united stronger than ever now that Chairman Jim Greer has resigned.
Greer stepped down Tuesday after three years as the party's leader.
Donors were refusing to give money to the financially strapped party-claiming Greer was not aggressive enough in challenging the current administration.
Greer's public support of Charlie Crist for the Senate race was the final straw.
Republicans say Greer leaving gives the party a fresh start.
"We are united that the awfulness of Washington needs to be challenged," said Palm Beach County Republican party chair Sid Dinerstein. "We are very much looking forward to the November election."
Leaders may vote on Greer's replacement at the party's annual conference in Orlando this weekend.
Jacksonville Senator John Thrasher is said to be the top choice.
