Bleeding Heartland: Iowa GOP outsourcing special election to special interests
Excerpted from this post at Bleeding Heartland
When your party suffers a net loss of seats in the state House and Senate for four elections in a row, it's time to try something different. In the case of the Republican Party of Iowa, that apparently means outsourcing operations for the September 1 special election in Iowa House district 90. In a July 31 e-mail blast, Iowa GOP chairman Matt Strawn encouraged activists to contact "Matt Gronewald, our Legislative Majority Fund Director," if they would like to volunteer for Stephen Burgmeier, the Republican candidate in district 90. However, Burgmeier's campaign website tells the real story.
