    Iowa’s presidential caucuses long have been the first event in the nominating process, but for Republicans, they lately have been a poor indicator of future success. The state’s quadrennial GOP straw poll has been even more discredited, an event that no longer draws some of the top candidates.

  • Rand Paul says school choice could expand GOP Apr 23, 2014 11:13 AM
    Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul said voters in perennial Democratic strongholds such as Chicago and Milwaukee will think differently if they see Republicans not just visiting these places, but discussing issues pertinent to their circumstances. That’s the thinking behind the 2016 GOP presidential prospect’s current visit to the two Midwestern metropolitan areas, where Paul said the Republican issue of school choice could appeal to minority parents.

  • New Lake County GOP leader wants unity Apr 19, 2014 8:00 AM
    The newest leader of Lake County’s Republican Party calls himself a conservative.

Christine Radogno and Rep. Jim Durkin.

    Kane County Republicans elected Tom Hartwell as their new party chairman Wednesday night, the third person to hold the gavel in as many conventions. “For too long, too much of our energy here in Kane County has been focused inward on our differences, both personal and philosophical, and not on our real task — taking our state and country back with the help of Republicans, independents and even Democrats," Hartwell wrote.

Those hopes were dashed this week by both the Cook County GOP and the state party. “The Cook County Republican Organization believes that Atanus should drop out of the race,” said Chairman Aaron Del Mar.
