BEHIND BRANSTAD: Danny Carroll Said He Supports A Reelection

Posted on: 11:41 pm, February 9, 2014, by

The new co-chair of the Republican Party of Iowa said he’s behind Governor Terry Branstad’s reelection efforts.

Just four years ago, Danny Carroll told a crowd “you are answering to God Almighty” as he endorsed the beliefs of the Family Leader’s Bob Vander Plaats over Branstad.

Carroll said there are always differences in politics but he’s now committed to supporting Branstad’s sixth term in office.

“Let’s face it, if you’re going to be on the State Republican Committee or a part of the Republican Party’s leadership, part of that, at least indirectly, you’re going to be supporting Republicans.  I certainly look forward to supporting Governor Branstad,” Carroll said.

Four years ago, social conservatives at the state convention tried to get Vander Plaats on as a Lieutenant Governor instead of Branstad’s pick, Kim Reynolds.  But Carroll said Reynolds will be the party’s nominee for Lieutenant Governor.

  • So the republican party is going to stand pat as the party of cowards and religious hypocrites. No surprise there.

  • William Denison says:

    Iowans should be very concerned their state government is being taken over by abunch of cult members. Family Leader head Vader Plaats can’t get elected to a office in this state so he has to weasel in tru the back door with his monkey Carol to spread their hate and fear.If I was a member of this states GOP I would bail. Tea Baggers and religion runs Iowas GOP.

    Tea Baggers? Think you do not know the players William. The Republican Party leadership is currently controlled by Libertarians and certain social factions but hardly by true Tea Party members.
