Iowa GOP Statement on Governor's Signing of Caucus Bill
In response to Governor Kim Reynolds signing the legislature's caucus bill today, Republican Party of Iowa Chairman Jeff Kaufmann released the following statement:
"I applaud the legislature and Governor Kim Reynolds for enacting legislation to preserve our First-in-the-Nation Caucus and cement Iowa's commitment to the nearly half-century old agreement with the other carveout states.
"With their bill, the legislature has given Iowa Democrats the tools to stand up to the destructive, far-left members in their party who oppose the caucus system and Iowa's First-in-the-Nation status as a whole.
"Hopefully, today's bill signing by the governor will mark an end to the Iowa Democrats pushing and then doubling down on an ill-advised, primary-in-all-but-name caucus proposal. The fate of middle Americans having a voice in selecting our next president depends on it."
