HawkeyeGOP: GOP convention -- Loyalty oath

Excerpted from this post at HawkeyeGOP

There has been a lot of buzz about a loyalty oath in the platform
passed at this weekend's State GOP Convention. At issue is the plank
7.9 which reads: "We believe candidates running as Republicans for any
local or state office should be required to complete and return to the
Republican Party of Iowa a signed questionnaire indicating whether the
candidate agrees, disagrees or is undecided about each plank of the
current party platform." This plank absolutely calls for a loyalty
oath. On the other hand neither RPI nor the State Central Committee
will consider such a thing. Having served on countless platform
committees, I can tell you that planks of this nature arise from a
frustration among the grassroots Republicans who create the platform.
