More than 150 Republicans celebrated the opening of the Polk County GOP’s new headquarters Monday evening. The parking lot overflowed with cars as attendees enjoyed tacos, beverages and fellowship with their fellow Republicans. The event raised $1,600.
“It has been an exciting week of events and we are very pleased so many Republicans came out to support the Grand Opening of the new Polk County Republican Headquarters, said Ryan Keller, executive director of the Polk County Republicans. “This office can accommodate our continued growth and assist our efforts in electing Republican candidates. I encourage Republicans who could not make it, to come to our new office.”
Many local candidates and officials were in attendance, including Iowa Secretary of Agriculture Bill Northey, state senators Pat Ward and Jack Whitver, House representative Kevin Koester, and county supervisors Robert Brownell and E.J. Giovanetti.
The Iowa House and Senate candidates on hand included Patti Blanco, Vicki Stogdill, Jim Carley, Jeff Ibbotson, John Landon, and Mike Brown. Representatives from the Romney campaign and Victory office were also in attendance. The new Polk GOP headquarters is located at 1228 8th Street, Suite 202, in West Des Moines.
