Lawrence Tabas was elected Chairman of the Republican Party of Pennsylvania in 2019.

As longtime general counsel to the Republican Party of Pennsylvania, Tabas has argued the cases for GOP candidates at the local, state and federal level.

A lifelong Republican and acclaimed expert on election law, Lawrence Tabas is known as a leader who stands by the rank-and-file during campaigns with a never-wavering grace and courtesy that has won the Pennsylvania GOP allies at every level of government.

His successful 2016 defense of President Trump against the Jill Stein “recount” effort secured the Trump presidency and prevented a last-ditch effort to steal the commonwealth’s electoral votes for the Hillary Clinton campaign.

“Whether a candidate is in the borough council or the White House, the party needs to stand up for democracy and American values,” Tabas explains. “Democracy only works when leaders listen. That’s how I approach my job.”

With more than four decades of representing his party and its candidates, Tabas became party chairman on July 13, 2019 at a time the Pennsylvania GOP faced fundraising challenges and endless attacks from liberal institutions and activists.

His representation places special emphasis on campaign finance law (federal and state), ballot referendum matters, nomination petitions and ballot access, recounts and election contests, regulatory matters, corporate and association sponsored political action committees, voting equipment and systems, conduct of elections and much more.

Tabas is a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania and earned his law degree at Georgetown University. He lives with his wife, Libby, in Philadelphia.

Justin Clark currently serves as Senior Counsel to President Donald Trump's 2020 re-election campaign. 

Early in his career, Clark was a co-founder of the Connecticut based law firm of Davis, Clark & Bonafonte LLC where his practice focused on litigation in state and federal trial and appellate courts. As a part of that practice, he served various state and national campaigns and committees. He served as General Counsel to the Connecticut Republican Party and managed the Tom Foley gubernatorial campaigns in 2010 and 2014. He was also political director for Linda McMahon's 2012 United States Senate campaign. In 2015, he served as General Counsel to Matt Bevin's gubernatorial campaign in Kentucky where, among other things, he successfully developed and executed the plan to preserve an 83-vote margin in a recanvass of votes in the May primary.

Prior to joining the presidential campaign of Donald Trump, Clark served as Director of Operations for Chris Christie for President where, working with other senior staff, he helped develop and manage the budget, helped develop and implement a fifty state ballot access program and managed the travel and advance staff.

Clark was hired by Donald Trump's presidential campaign in March 2016 as the campaign's Connecticut state director and later served as an advisor to the campaign during the Indiana primary in May 2016. In June 2016, he was named Deputy National Political Director of the campaign and served in that capacity through the end of the election. In that role he developed and implemented a 50-state political and field strategy and during the 2016 Republican National Convention served as one of the chief whips for the campaign on the rules committee and on the floor. He later headed the campaign's recount efforts in Michigan and served as the chief whip for the campaign in the electoral college. After the election Clark served on the Presidential transition team.

Clark became the President's Director of Intergovernmental Affairs on January 20, 2017. He was appointed the Director of Public Liaison in March 2018. In December 2018, Clark was named Senior Political Advisor to the President's re-election campaign focusing on delegate and party organization. Clark is also Senior Counsel to the President's re-election campaign focused on compliance and election day operations.
