Greer's opponents charge that he has spent too much money, and have circulated a petition that has received dozens of signatures from party executive committee members, calling for his ouster. "A lot of us worked a long time building this party up from nothing," said Ron Richmond, a former state House Republican leader. "But to see the kind of trouble it's in right now, is very disheartening."

Florida GOP press secretary Katie Gordon Betta told TPM: "Chairman Greer intends to serve the remainder of his elected term, and is encouraged by the overwhelming vote of confidence he recently received from the State Executive Board, as well as the support Florida's Republican Governor, legislative leadership, several congressmen, dozens of state legislators and thousands of Florida's grassroots leaders and donors."
