Iowa Defense Alliance: Former GOP county co-chair launches House bid as independent

Excerpted from this post at BLOGNAME

We have been saying for some time that the people advocating for
Republicans to compromise on our principles would only serve to drive
the most loyal base from the party. A perfect example of this would
the case of former Pocahontas County Republican Party co-Chair Tom
Shaw. Mr. Shaw is appalled by the direction that some individuals seem
to want to take the party in. As a result Mr. Shaw has withdrawn from
the party and is now running for Iowa House District 8 as an
independent. I was honored to have a conversation with Mr. Shaw
yesterday morning during which he repeatedly cited efforts to move the
party toward the "mushy middle" as his reason for leaving the party.
