RPI Statement on O’Rourke’s Iowa Campaign Stops

DES MOINES — Republican Party of Iowa Chairman Jeff Kaufmann released the following statement in response to Beto O’Rourke’s upcoming Iowa campaign stops:

“During his last Iowa trip, Beto O’Rourke proved he’s not ready for primetime — he compared climate change proposals to ‘those who were on the beaches in Normandy,’ he was forced to apologize for writing a twisted murder fantasy, and Nancy Pelosi couldn’t even name a single one of his accomplishments. During this trip, Beto must condemn his fellow presidential candidates who voted to block disaster relief for Iowans dealing with flood recovery. His silence on the issue is deafening for rural Iowans struggling to get back on their feet.”
