Iowa GOP Chair Running For Second Term

December 9, 2010

Matt Strawn announced Thursday that he'll seek a second term as chairman of the Iowa Republican Party, a move that would position him in an important role in the run up to the 2012 Iowa caucuses.

Strawn would be the first chairman in eight years to serve a second term at the helm of the Iowa GOP, barring an unexpected challenge. The Iowa State Committee will hold elections in January.

The Iowa Republican Party had a particularly strong cycle this year -- no incumbent Republican lost in a statewide or congressional race.

And, from the sounds of this interview with the AP, Strawn is confident in his re-election chances.

"I've got well over majority support in the committee," he said.

Strawn's announcement comes the same week that the chair of another early presidential state, New Hampshire GOP Chairman John Sununu, announced he would not seek another term when the state committee holds their election in January. South Carolina GOP Chairwoman Karen Floyd also decided last month that she won't seek a second term. The South Carolina holds its leadership elections in May.
