Steve Deace Announces He’s Running for Polk GOP Chair

Even though he voted for Jonathan Narcisse for Governor in 2010 and voted for Barak Obama in 2008, WHO Radio host Steve Deace is running to be the Chairman of the Polk County Republican Party.  Deace announced his candidacy on his Facebook page this afternoon, just hours before the vote takes place tonight.

The Central Committee meeting will be held on Tuesday, January 25, 2011 from 7:00p – 9:00p at the Northwest Community Center (5110 Franklin Ave. in Des Moines).  We will be holding elections for Party Chair and Co-chair.

The following is what Deace posted to his Facebook page.

Why I am running for Chairman of the Polk County Republican Party

It’s about the platform, stupid.

With the exception of the last two years of President George W. Bush’s tenure, I have been a registered Republican since I was 18 years old, and that’s because I believe strongly in the principles of the party platform.

The principles of the Republican Party platform line up with my Christian worldview as well as the Constitutional Republic our Founding Fathers intended for us to be. Few have fought harder for those principles than I have the past several years, and I have done so with no motive other than securing the God-given rights and liberties our Founders intended for our children and grandchildren.

Most people that are the most likely to volunteer for the Republican Party and/or become the candidates that are the least likely to embarrass the Republican Party brand name are motivated by the righteous principles found in the Republican Party platform. Likewise, I am running for this position because our county will be at the epicenter of the national debate over how to rectify the ungodly and unAmerican policies of the Obama Administration courtesy of the Iowa Caucuses. Therefore, we have a responsibility to do all we can to put the country ahead of our own interests by using the platform Almighty God has allowed us to take the boldest stand for our principles as possible.

This is why I am willing to donate time I do not have to do this, because I may never get another chance to do something so important for the future of my children and my grandchildren.

This isn’t about factions, personalities, or fellowship. This is about the platform. This state needs the Republican Party of Iowa platform advanced now more than ever, as does this nation.

If you believe the primary objective of a Republican is to advance the platform on all fronts regardless of who gets to claim credit for it, then I humbly ask for your vote. If you don’t, then I’m not your candidate.

If this is what you’re looking for in a chairman, then I invite you to attend tonight’s county central committee meeting and support me.

God bless,

Steve Deace
