Paul Backer Wins Re-Election As Iowa Chairman
In Iowa, A.J. Spiker, a top Ron Paul backer and real estate agent narrowly won election as state GOP chair – a development that has worried party veterans there.
One Iowa Republican noted that Spiker, a former county chair, “has never run a campaign before and is completely ideologically motivated.”
“I don’t think he knows how to execute a plan – communications, fundraising or field,” said the Republican. “He’s not a guy you have a lot of confidence in.”
