The Iowa Federation of Republican Women will hold its Spring Conference at Rhythm City Casino Resort in Davenport on Saturday, April 17, with Congresswoman Mariannette
Miller-Meeks featured as luncheon keynote speaker.

“For the spring meeting this year, we will be in Iowa’s Second District, or what we like to call Miller-Meeks country,” said IowaFRW President Barbara Hames-Bryant, from Cedar Rapids.

Congresswoman Miller-Meeks, a long-time IowaFRW member, was elected to represent Southeast Iowans in Washington, D.C., during the general election last November. Despite her prevailing on election day, in a recount, and having her election certified by a bipartisan group of electors, Democrats attempted for four months to steal her seat in a power grab led by Nancy Pelosi.

“That contest has now been decided once and for all, which will make our 2021 Spring Conference all the more enjoyable,” Hames-Bryant added. “IowaFRW members, Iowa elected leaders, and Iowans across the state are vindicated. After unnecessary delay
and expense, Rep. Mariannette Miller-Meeks has proven the right to continue in her legally-elected Congressional seat.”

Also addressing the state’s largest political women’s group will be Iowa Senator and IowaFRW member Chris Cournoyer, Republican Party of Iowa Chair Jeff Kaufmann, Scott County Republican Chair and former IowaFRW President Jeanita McNulty, and Scott County Supervisor John Maxwell. U.S. Senator Chuck Grassley will address the group via Zoom.

Next Saturday’s event begins with the executive committee meeting at 9 a.m., followed by the board meeting at 10 a.m. Buffet lunch will be available at 11:30 a.m., with speakers taking the podium beginning at noon.

“IowaFRW will work determinedly toward the goal of a GOP congressional majority,” said Hames-Bryant. “We are focusing forward to 2022, ready to energize and mobilize our volunteers, and bring common sense back to Washington, D.C.”
