HawkeyeGOP: The Platform

Excerpted from this post at HawkeyeGOP

Former Des Moines Register editor Gilbert Cranberg is worried that the Republican Party of Iowa's state platform could jeopardize Iowa's First in the Nation Caucus. In an op-ed piece this week, Cranberg wrote: "The customary rap against allowing Iowa's caucuses to lead the nominating parade, and thus be in an early position to boost or break candidates, is that the state is short on diversity. The scary platform the state GOP adopted June 17 raises the more compelling question of whether a party that advocates extremism ought to have undue clout in the presidential selection process."
