Iowa Independent: Local GOP candidate says party leaders snubbed her ahead of McCain rally

Excerpted from this post at Iowa Independent

At least three Cedar Rapids-area Republican candidates for state
office have been snubbed by GOP leadership in an opportunity to share
the stage with Arizona Sen. John McCain Thursday, according to one of
the candidates. Kathy Potts, Republican candidate in Iowa House
District 33, said she has been excluded from the event. She said Emma
Nemecek, Republican candidate in House District 29, and Joe Childers,
who is running in Senate District 18, had also been told that they
would not get to appear with McCain. "Christopher [Rants] and Kraig
[Paulsen] are in charge of the event tomorrow with McCain," said
Potts. "They do not want me on stage. They said that I and Emma
Nemecek and Joe Childers are losers and that they only want Renee
[Schulte] and Nick [Wagner] on stage."
