Iowa GOP Chairman Matt Strawn tonight at the Polk County Republicans Robb Kelly dinner chastised those who believe that Iowa should not have first in the nation status because they believe Iowa Republicans are not a representative of Republicans in general.

At a time when more and more Iowans are identifying with the Republican Party of Iowa, there are those, mostly from outside our borders, who suggest that we are simply not representative of America, nor even Republicans in general.

To suggest that Iowa Republicans don’t care about exploding deficits, rising fuel and food costs, job-killing regulatory uncertainty, wasteful Stimulus spending, and shameful demagoguery on entitlement reform is dead wrong.  Actually, to suggest that we don’t care about those defining issues for America is as wrong as it is offensive.
