DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - The Iowa Democratic Party says its chairwoman and a Des Moines-based drill group will represent Iowa in Monday's inaugural parade in Washington.

Party Chair Sue Dvorsky said Thursday she "couldn't be more excited" to join the parade along with the Isiserettes, a group of high school students that performs marching and drumming routines.

The group performed at President Barack Obama's first inaugural event in 2009 and at an Obama campaign stop at the Iowa State Fairgrounds in Des Moines last May. The group also appeared at Obama campaign events dating back to 2007.

Dvorsky says she's thrilled to appear with other Iowans who helped launch Obama's career. She says it's been "an incredible journey and the opportunity to march in the parade puts a perfect bow on this whole experience."
