Hawkeye GOP: McGee endorses Branstad

Excerpted from this post at Hawkeye GOP

Isaiah McGee is a former Waukee City Councilman and Mayoral candidate.
I got to know Isaiah when we were colleagues on the Republican State
Central Committee. I have a great deal of respect for Isaiah. He is
young, articulate and intelligent. He is an asset to the SCC. Isaiah,
is a standup guy, he is one of the good guys. ... The link is to a
Branstad press release announcing that McGee will serve as Branstad's
Young Professional's chair. McGee is a good pickup for Branstad, he is
charismatic and will be able to reach the targeted demographic. I have
gotten some emails and messages from people asking about whether I
thought Isaiah should resign from the SCC. ... I made this promise to
my district when they elected me and I kept this promise when I
resigned in order to support my friend Christian Fong. I criticized my
successor on the SCC because because she (and the other two candidates
for the position) promised to remain neutral and she also made an
endorsement in the gubernatorial primary. So, why am I not calling for
Isaiah's resignation? Because he made no such promise.
