Democratic leader responds to IA Senate Majority Leader Bill Dix's resignation
SIOUX CITY, IA —
Democrats in Iowa are enthusiastic about the future of the party after Iowa Senate Majority Leader Bill Dix's resignation yesterday.
A group a Democrats met in Sioux City to talk about leadership after the changes occurring at the capitol in Des Moines.
State Party Chairman Troy Price spoke about how Dix's resignation could be a turning point for the state of Iowa.
“I think it underscores what we've known for a while which is that the Republican party is out of touch, their leadership is more interested in fighting for special interests and fighting for themselves than fighting for the people of Iowa. Our candidate over there is going to do a great job, we look forward to standing shoulder to shoulder with them to turn that seat back to blue,” said Troy Price, Chairman of the Iowa Democratic Party.
Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds is expected to call a special election to fill Dix's seat within the next week.
