Flag-map-of-IowaDES MOINES, Iowa– On Thursday, voter registration numbers from the Iowa Secretary of State’s office revealed that Republicans in Iowa had increased their lead on voter registration in the month of June. This comes after the Republican Party of Iowa surpassed the Iowa Democratic Party in voter registration in March for the first time since 2006. Republicans in Iowa now hold a voter registration advantage over the Democrats of more than 21,000 voters.

The number of registered voters for each party as of July 2 are as follows:

Republicans – 619,452
Democrats – 598,074

“More than three years of President Obama’s failed economic policies have led to record unemployment, higher food and gas prices and historic levels of debt, said Republican Party of Iowa Chairman A.J. Spiker." Hard-working Iowans see the problems in the Democratic Party’s policies and see the greater opportunities that the principles of the Republican party can provide."

“My goal as Chairman has always been to grow the Party as much as possible. We’ve assembled a great team at RPI Headquarters that is committed to registering Republicans to vote and winning elections. As the first Republican Chairman in six years to preside over a party that leads the Democrats in registration, I welcome new voters into the Republican Party of Iowa with open arms. I look forward to working with Republicans and disaffected Democrats all across Iowa in order to grow our Party and keep Iowa red for years to come.”

  1. Think all those primary challenges to your House incumbents had anything to do with it?
