Iowa GOP Chairman Jeff Kaufmann has taken to task the editorial board of the Cedar Falls Gazette in recent months. And just this week, he offered a response to the Des Moines Register.

The Register put forth a piece saying that “our leaders in the 2010s did not invest in communities, in the environment, in Iowans.”

“Clearly they are not interested in honest journalism,” Kaufmann said. “It’s disappointing to start the new year knowing that the DMR editorial board is doubling and tripling down on being partisan unprofessional jokes.”

Kaufmann highlighted record low unemployment for Iowans, historic income growth and new initiatives such as Future Ready Iowa that “don’t just hand out money, but rather teach Iowans new skills to help lift them up.”

“Those that comprise the Des Moines Register editorial board have conveniently ignored important GOP accomplishments,” he continued. “Iowa is second in the nation in wind energy, greenhouse gas emissions are down over the last 10 years and the GOP led the way to improve water quality.”
