Congratulations to A.J. Spiker, Ron Paul’s former Iowa Co-Chairman, on being re-elected State Chairman for the Republican Party of Iowa. Congratulations, too, to David Fischer, also Ron Paul’s former Iowa Co-Chairman, on being elected Republican State Party Co-Chairman.
I know both A.J. and David and they enjoy my full confidence. They’ve already done great work. Who would have guessed, years ago, that such a thing would even be possible?
One of A.J.’s early decisions was to bring on Steve Bierfeldt to serve as Executive Director of the party. Steve is one of the most honorable people I’ve had the privilege to know. He is a person of tremendous capability and moral character. I would want him involved in any major endeavor of mine, so A.J. certainly has good judgment.
The so-called “moderates” in the Party — in other words, the people who favor intervention both at home and abroad — are up in arms, naturally, and are pledging to shut down the party apparatus and “get rid of these Paul people,” by refusing to donate money and encouraging others to stop donating as well.
They’re livid, in other words. Couldn’t have happened to a more deserving bunch. The whole state party is in the hands of people who supported the one decent man on the ballot in 2012.
