Congratulations to Those Who Won Their Primary Elections
Thank you to all the candidates who stepped up to run. You are all winners and an important part of the Scott County Republican Party!
We are excited that the Scott County Republicans beat the Democrats in turnout, thanks to all of you!
This Primary Election was the second largest voter turnout statewide in Iowa history. It is the largest Primary Election turnout in a nonpresidential election year! The momentum is building for victory in November!
Republican Excitement at the Blue Grass Parade
The enthusiasm gap between the two major political parties was on full display at Saturday’s Blue Grass parade. Scott County Republicans had a strong turnout and enthusiastic support while the Scott County Democrats had a dismal contingent at the parade. When your party’s leader is polling in the low 30’s and is now being referred to as a worse president than Jimmy Carter, there really isn’t much to get excited about.
Off & running! Michele Darland files as a Republican candidate for Scott County Recorder!
It’s Official! Roby Smith is Candidate for Iowa State Treasurer
