Will Rogers New Polk County GOP Chair

Will Rogers, Iowa PoliticsIn Iowa Politics tonight, Will Rogers and Dave Edwards faced off in the biennial Polk County Republican Party Central Committee Officer Elections.  Will Rogers won the election 93 to 45.

Polk County is home to about 20% of Iowa voters.

Both candidates gave strong speeches and answers to questions from the committee.  With 139 in attendance, the group showed a great deal of support for both candidates, and asked some great questions.

The other three positions had only one candidate each and were elected by acclamation:

Co-chair: Chad Brown

Secretary: Joe Heuertz

Treasurer: Cheryl Weisheit

Congratulations to each of the candidates… these are challenging jobs, and not considered lightly.

Despite predictions of a contentious meeting, this was a very calm and unified time with Republicans.  Great work by all!

    Well, obviously I am happy that my good friend Will Rogers will be the new Polk GOP Chairman. It looks like a good slate of supporting officers too. I hope the whole central committee gets behind the new leadership. We need leadership that respects all of the various factions of the Republican party.
