State GOP raises over $300,000 in over a month

The new chairman of the Iowa Republican Party says the organization has raised more than $315,000 since he took the helm just over a month ago.

The party announced the fundraising numbers in a Wednesday news release. Chairman Jeff Kauffman, a former state lawmaker, was selected for the job in late June.  At that time, he pledged to raise more than $300,000 during his first three months.  The organization had limited funds in the bank when Kauffman took charge.

Kauffman was made chairman after new members were elected to the state central committee with the support of Gov. Terry Branstad.

Branstad wants to unite the party and ensure the future of the state's leadoff presidential caucuses.  The changes came after tension between veteran Republicans and evangelical and libertarian groups.
