Iowa GOP chair leaves for Rand Paul's PACSubmitted by Puma for Life on Mon, 03/10/2014 - 19:06
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."
