Krusty Konservative: Almost there

Excerpted from this post at Krusty Konservative

Yesterday Senate Republicans elected Sen. Paul McKinley to lead them
in the State Senate. The move came as no surprise as many of the
Senators who supported Sen. Ron Wieck are no longer serving in the
Senate. McKinley a conservative Republican, now resides over a more
unified caucus than his predecessors when it comes to ideology. I
think there will be a noticeable difference coming from the minority
in the Senate this session. While the State House has been the focus
for Iowa Republicans in the past 2 elections, it's the Senates turn to
get some much needed love and attention. While Republicans are firmly
in the minority with only 18 Republicans compared to 32 Democrats,
it's the senate who has some very good opportunities to pick up seats
in the next election. Sure it might take time to regain the majority,
but it's an effort we must be committed to.
