“I have been, and am a Republican for all Republicans. The first three letters of my name are G-O-P. I ran because I don’t want to wait until the primary elections to promote unity. I want to continue to increase our party’s voter registration advantage and participation in the forthcoming elections. I look forward to working with RNC Chairman Reince Priebus to advance the Growth and Opportunity Project, work to reach out to minorities and bring new people into our Republican Party. As long as I am Co-Chairman of the Republican Party of Iowa, outreach to all minority communities will be a priority.”
