Chairman Kaufmann will lead a door knock in the Cedar Rapids area following the rally. Door knocking teams will also be dispatched from the Iowa GOP’s offices in Sioux City, Des Moines, and Ottumwa.
“While tired ideas of the Democrat Party will be on full display this weekend, our Republican candidates will be represented at the Iowa GOP’s United Iowa event just a few miles away,” Reince Priebus, chairman of the Republican National Committee said. “Unlike the Democrats, we have a robust field of strong, highly talented Republican candidates capable of defeating Hillary Clinton, who the American people find dishonest and untrustworthy.”
