Politically Speaking: Hoffmann exits GOP chairmanship

Excerpted from this post at Politically Speaking

Leave for a three-day weekend and what happens? Ray Hoffmann of Sioux
City quits his position as Iowa Republican Party of Iowa chairman, and
a successor (Stewart Iverson) is named the following day. The
possibility of Hoffmann stepping down from the chairmanship had been
aired, therefore it was going to happen. Something like this doesn't
reach the public level without an almost certain likelihood that
Hoffmann was departing. But prior to that, the ankle biting on
Hoffmann had been taking place, as some were saying it was time for
him to go, that he hadn't been effectively leading the party. When the
simmering chasm in the Woodbury County GOP blew open big and bad in
late 2006, some were critical of Ray for not stepping in to help solve
the problem in his own home county.
