Bleeding Heartland: Kiernan can't do it alone

Excerpted from this post at Bleeding Heartland

Congratulations to Des Moines City Council member Michael Kiernan, who
was elected to chair the Iowa Democratic Party on Saturday, along with
First Vice-Chair Sue Dvorsky, Second Vice-Chair Chris Peterson,
Treasurer Ken Sagar and Secretary Dori Rammelsberg-Dvorak.
I was pleased to read Kiernan's remarks from his first press
conference: "We have over 100,000 new registered voters in this state
who are Democrats, hundreds of new activists. I think our key is to
keep these folks in the party, to bring them home permanently." ...
Kiernan echoed these points in the press release from the Iowa
Democratic Party, which I've posted after the jump. It's good to know
the IDP's leader understands that we can't count on first-time
Democratic voters to continue to support the party. This is especially
true because President Barack Obama will not be on the ballot in 2010.
