This Saturday Iowa Republicans will elect a new National Kommitteewoman at the state konvention. The two main candidates are State Representative Sandy Greiner, and Iowa Right to Life President Kim Lehman.
For me the choice is simple, there is only ONE Krustacean in the race and that’s Sandy Greiner. As an avid reader of this blog, I’m confident that she is prepared to represent Iowa Republicans on a national level.
Now this is really nothing to joke about. Our National Kommitteewoman will be one of the few voices defending
“One of the greatest challenges
“The most important job for the National Committeeman and National Committeewoman is to represent
Both of these letters are fine, but I think
In Kim Lehman’s letter she states “that leaders should keep these priorities: God, Family, Country, Republican Party.” She then goes on to say, “I strongly believe that if we do this, the role of government would be reduced and the social issues we struggle over would be resolved.”
Now I don’t disagree with her, but the position of National Kommitteewoman is a highly political one. I don’t get the sense from her letter that she understands how badly other states want to strip away our First in the Nation status.
What people need to understand is that
I know a lot of people think John McCain hates the Iowa Caucuses. He should be very thankful for them. It was the Iowa Caucuses which allowed an underdog like Huckabee to take root and grow while his initial campaign crumbled. Huckabee provided McCain cover and gave him some precious time to rebuild and capitalize on
On the other hand if the first state was a larger one with multiple media markets, or if there were a cluster of states that kicked off the process McCain would have been DOA. I think it’s important to tell people why
Back to the National Committeewoman race. Kim is a very nice lady, and give her Krusty Kudos for the work she does with Iowa Right to Life. Sandy Greiner (who is also Pro-Life and was one hell of a legislator) knows how to operate in a highly political environment, and has the experience necessary to represent Iowa Republicans from day one, and help protect our First in the Nation Status.
