Members voted to elect former congressional candidate Art Robinson.
Former party chair, Suzanne Gallagher resigned before a recall vote was taken.
John Philo with the Deshcutes County Republicans says it had to be done.
"We had problems raising funds at the top of the Oregon republican top. Her plans conflicted with the rest of the plans of the Executive Committee. There wasn't unity there. And it's always tough to remvoe someone from office, but in the end, Suzanne Gallagher had the graciousness to step down from that position."
Art Robinson is a chemist by profession. He ran unsucessfully in 2010 and 2012 against U.S. Representative Peter DeFazio.
Philo says he is an effective fundraiser.
