Georgia Party GOP chair backs McCain
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Sen. John McCain's exploratory committee announced Tuesday that Georgia Republican Party Chairman Alec Poitevint has accepted a leadership position on his campaign team, if the GOP senator chooses to run for president.

Poitevint will be a Southern co-chair of McCain's campaign, as the Arizona senator continues to try and lock up GOP support in this region in front of an expected announcement to seek his party's presidential nomination.Poitevint has held several national positions for the GOP, including serving as former treasurer of the Republican National Committee.
