The outgoing chairman of Iowa's Republican Party supports legalizing the medical use of marijuana.
The former head of the Iowa Republican Party has taken a job with Sen. Rand Paul's political action committee — providing more evidence that the Kentucky Republican is laying the foundation for a 2016 presidential bid.
The same rift between insurgent Republicans and old-line party establishment figures that is rattling Washington is also playing out in states such as Iowa, where open warfare has broken out between veteran GOP operatives and the state party chairman, an ally of former Rep. Ron Paul of Texas.
In a highly unusual move, Iowa's two top Republican party officials are publicly urging President Obama not to go ahead with plans to bomb Syria.
"With me no longer chairman, the press and the rest of the nation will take more notice of Rand Paul's doing well in the Ames Straw Poll next summer," Mr. Spiker told The Times in explaining his departure.
Mr. Spiker said it wasn't up to the governor, but rather it was the party that decides such things.
