Among other things, the State Central Committee determines the method of nomination for statewide candidates, considers and adopts amendments to the State Party Plan, and resolves disputes over internal Party matters that work their way up from the local to the state level. The State Central Committee is the governing body for the Republican Party of Virginia and on January 21, 2012 it will meet to vote on the 2012 Presidential Intent Requirement (loyalty oath).
