Radio Iowa: Republican Party of Iowa holds state convention

Excerpted from this post at Radio Iowa

Things got off to a slow start. A gentleman strolled up to the
microphone to announce the following shortly after nine o'clock this
morning: "Who's ever in charge of seating arrangements, there are no
seats for Audubon County." (The chairs on the floor of Hy-Vee Hall --
the site of today's convention -- are arranged in rows, by county. A
few moments later, the same man made another announcement: "There are
no seats for Winnebago County either," he said, adding with a bit of
sarcasm: "This is the party of inclusion!" Some in the crowd clapped;
others laughed. A barbershop quartet sang the National Anthem,
followed by an attempt to get all the "junior delegates" to the
convention on stage so they could lead the Pledge.
