    DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) The state's largest county Republican organization is calling on the top two officials at the Iowa GOP to resign.

    The Des Moines Register reports Wednesday that the Polk County GOP voted Tuesday night in favor of a resolution asking Iowa Republican Party Chairman A.J. Spiker and Co-Chairman David Fischer to resign. The resolution was approved by a 33 to 29 vote.

    The resolution states that the Polk GOP has no faith in the party leadership. It criticizes the party for conflicts over scheduling the 2014 state convention and caucuses.

    The Appanoose County GOP approved a similar resolution last week.
