Iowa Defense Alliance: Oh really, Mary Lundby?!?

Excerpted from this post at Iowa Defense Alliance

Delivered to my door via The (Ames) Tribune: "Party veterans: GOP
stresses social issues too much." Well, that got my skimming the news
down to actually reading an entire article. It was well worth my time.
According to Mary Lundby, former Iowa Senate Republican leader, many
GOP voters in Iowa are more worried about the economy and energy
prices than they are about social issues including abortion or gay
rights. Lundby also asserts that the state party's central committee
has given a short shrift to other topics in favor of social issues and
that could turn off voters. "Voters have got so many other issues on
their minds, and when you only coalesce on those (social) issues, you
lose those voters in the chatter, and we can't afford that."
