Iowa GOP chair leaves for Rand Paul's PAC

Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) has brought on Iowa Republican Party Chairman A.J. Spiker (R) as an adviser to his political action committee — the latest signal Paul is seriously weighing a presidential bid.

Spiker announced this weekend he was stepping down as head of the state party after years of clashes between his side and establishment Republicans close to Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad (R)


"We are pleased that A.J. will be joining us, his experience in Iowa and across the nation will be vital," RAND PAC Executive Director Doug Stafford said in a statement. "His ability to work with the grassroots is unmatched and we welcome him to the team."

Gravy train alert!

All aboard! The gravy train is leaving the station.

The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge into it, move with it, and join the dance. - Alan Watts

Glad for AJ

I've seen some small examples of their treatment of him. Shameful.

Big congrats to AJ!!

Congratulations A. J. and GOOD LUCK to you and Rand PAC.

Iowa still has a GOP?

After they demonstrate their corruption by making the caucuses meaningless? Suckers are born every minute.
