Establishment Takes Back Control of Iowa GOP

Politico: "Establishment forces officially wrested control of the Iowa Republican Party from supporters of Rand Paul on Saturday, a development the victors said would help save the state's first-in-the-nation presidential caucus from being marginalized and possibly spell the demise of the Ames Straw Poll."

"The transfer of power to those loyal to Gov. Terry Branstad -- which has been in the works for months but was completed on Saturday -- increases the likelihood that center-right GOP candidates, such as Chris Christie or Jeb Bush, will choose to compete in the caucus."
