Constitution Daily: The next executive director
Excerpted from this post at Constitution Daily
After taking some advice from emails and comments on this blog, I'm jumping headfirst into the RPI positions. I believe the chair's job is to raise money, communicate with the county chairs, and advance the platform of the Iowa Republican Party (no matter what it says). They should also have an eye on strategy but for the most part the chair's job is to raise money. The executive director should take care of strategy. ... Instead of discussing who I think should be chair, I'm skipping right to the Executive Director position. Per capita we have more political experts in Iowa than any other state. Almost all of us have a close friend or family member that has worked on a campaign in Iowa and many have worked the statewide races. We are lucky to have so many bright minds to choose from. The biggest hurdle is actually getting them to accept the position.
