In hopes of making a seamless transition in leadership, the odds of using an already scheduled meeting of the State Central Committee to choose a new leader is becoming increasingly likely.
Fellow blogger, and State Central Committee member, David Chung is all over the story. Please check out the link below that will take you to his site HawkeyeGOP.com. I have been a reader of his for a while now–besides being a reasoned voice from inside the Party, he has shown absolute fairness in dealing with all issues.
Not only does he touch on the rules governing the process, he gives a brief rundown of the three known candidates to replace Matt Strawn, who recentley stepped down as Chairman of the Party.

Here in Polk County we have a special election coming up to replace State Senator Larry Noble (R-35), who has been appointed to be the new commissioner of the Iowa Department of Public Safety. The special election will be held on January 18th, and Republicans will be holding a nominating convention tonight to select a candidate. Democrats will meet to select their candidate on January 3rd.

That story, and some opinion, is well covered by Craig Robinson of The Iowa Republican. Also, highlights of all five of the announced candidates for tonight’s convention are found here.
