Evangelical Group May Sponsor Iowa Straw Poll

If Republican party officials decide to scrap the Iowa straw poll, as Gov. Terry Branstad (R) has suggested, a nonprofit evangelical conservative group is ready to fill in the gap, the Des Moines Register reports.

"Branstad said it 'has outlived its usefulness' and 'its days are over' ... But the straw poll has its defenders, including A.J. Spiker, current head of the Republican Party of Iowa, which uses the straw poll as a key fundraising tool."
