Gentry Collins, an Iowa Republican political strategist who served as one of the McCain regional campaign managers for the general election, has been offered the position of Political Director or the RNC and has accepted the position.
Collins served as Mitt Romney’s Iowa state director for the 2008 Iowa caucuses, served as the executive director of the Republican Party of Iowa, managed Doug Gross’ 2002 gubernatorial campaign, and worked as a legislative aide to State Representative Christopher Rants.
With Collins headed to the RNC, it means that Iowa Republicans will have a high ranking ally at the RNC. It also could be a sign that newly elected RNC Chairman Michael Steele wants to soothe any fears that Iowans may have about our First-in-the-Nation status being in jeopardy.
