RPI Chairman Strawn Statement on Conlin Candidacy for U.S. Senate

Des Moines, IA – Republican Party of Iowa Chairman Matt Strawn issued the following statement in response to Roxanne Conlin’s challenge to Senator Chuck Grassley:

“Roxanne is out of touch with Iowa. She rails on special interests, yet she was president of one of the biggest special interests known - the American Trial Lawyers Association. As a trial lawyer, Roxanne got the lion's share of $75 million from a class-action lawsuit that left regular Iowans with $16-29 apiece, according to news reports. Instead of fighting against special interests, the reality is, Roxanne Conlin is one of them. Roxanne thinks you can just sue your way to economic prosperity, but Iowans know that’s just not the case. We need solutions to cure our economic woes, not lawsuits.”
