Iowa Republicans Embarrass Themselves With A Clown Present Caucus

The Iowa Republican Occasion is grumbling that Trump was declared the winner too early, but it surely was the Republican Occasion that gave the outcomes to the media.

The Ron DeSantis campaign is complaining that the press engaged in election interference by declaring Trump the winner early in the process.

Iowa Republican Occasion Chair Jeff Kaufmann blamed the media in a press release:

Media retailers calling the outcomes of the 2024 first-in-the-nation caucus lower than half an hour after precinct caucuses had been known as to order — earlier than the overwhelming majority of Iowans had even forged their poll — was extremely disappointing and regarding. One of many key variations between the Iowa Caucus and a regular major election is that Iowans have the possibility to take heed to presidential candidates or their surrogates and consider to make an knowledgeable choice. “There was no must rush one of the vital clear, grassroots democratic processes within the nation.

There is only one downside.

The Iowa Republican Occasion gave the outcomes to the media:

If the Republican Occasion didn’t need the outcomes to be reported, then they shouldn’t have given them to the media. If the caucus course of wants time, the get together wants to provide it time. In Iowa, the caucuses are run by every political get together, not by the state.

Every presidential election cycle, Iowa continues to point out why they and their caucuses shouldn’t be first within the nation. There was no drama within the caucus. Everyone knew that Trump was going to win, but when the Iowa Republican Occasion cared about participation by voters, they need to cease releasing early outcomes to the media.
