Iowa GOP Statement on Iowa Democrats' Revised Caucus Proposal
In response to Iowa Democrats releasing their revised caucus proposal earlier today, Republican Party of Iowa Chairman Jeff Kaufmann released the following statement:
“If it is the goal of the Iowa Democratic Party to carry out the will of Iowans and preserve our First-in-the-Nation status, they cannot move forward with their mail-in ballot plan that supersedes the New Hampshire Primary.
“It is becoming clear to me that keeping Iowa first is not the goal of the Iowa Democrats. The fact that they continue to keep pushing their primary-in-all-but-name proposal gives the appearance that the Iowa Democrats are hellbent on tanking the entire caucus. They’ve turned what used to be a process that we did together into all out political warfare.
“There is nothing stopping Iowa Democrats from simply holding their de facto primary after New Hampshire's First-in-the-Nation Primary. Instead, Iowa Democrats would rather carry water for Joe Biden and his vendetta against the Iowa Caucus, even running the risk of breaking Iowa law. They’ve reached a new low in political gamesmanship - organizing an effort to kill the Iowa Caucuses.”
