WASHINGTON, July 28 (UPI) -- Republican National Committee Chairman Ed Gillespie said Wednesday that Anne Phelps and Ginny Wolfe would lead the 2004 Republican Platform Committee staff.

Phelps will serve as executive director while Wolfe will serve as communications director for the committee, which will be chaired by Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist, M.D., R-Tenn.

U.S. Rep. Melissa Hart, R-Pa., and Colo. Gov Bill Owens had previously been named the committee's co-chair.

"We are fortunate to have such talented people join us as the 2004 Platform Committee works to craft a proposal that reflects the president's goals and the beliefs of our party," Gillespie said. "Both Anne and Ginny bring years of policy expertise and communications experience to the task at hand and will play an important role in making sure this year's platform reflects the priorities of the Republican Party."

The Republican National Convention will be held for the first time ever in New York City at Madison Square Garden from Aug. 30 - Sept. 2, 2004.
