In response to Governor Kim Reynolds signing the legislature’s caucus bill today, Republican Party of Iowa Chairman Jeff Kaufmann released the following statement:

“I applaud the legislature and Governor Kim Reynolds for enacting legislation to preserve our First-in-the-Nation Caucus and cement Iowa’s commitment to the nearly half-century-old agreement with the other carveout states.

“With their bill, the legislature has given Iowa Democrats the tools to stand up to the destructive, far-left members in their party who oppose the caucus system and Iowa’s First-in-the-Nation status as a whole.

“Hopefully, today’s bill signing by the governor will mark an end to the Iowa Democrats pushing and then doubling down on an ill-advised, primary-in-all-but-name caucus proposal. The fate of middle Americans having a voice in selecting our next president depends on it.”
