State Official Questions 2014 GOP Convention Delay

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) Iowa Secretary of State Matt Schultz has rejected an argument from the state Republican Party chairman, who has been backing a delay in the 2014 GOP convention until after the primary vote is certified.

Chairman A.J. Spiker has supported moving the convention from June 14 to July 12. He argues the party needs time so the June 3 primary results can be certified. In a letter Thursday, he told party officials he would not seek a vote to reconsider the decision.

But in a statement released Friday, the Republican Schultz says the party can hold a convention before official certification is complete.

In response to the Schultz statement, Spiker wrote in an email that he would call for a meeting of the State Central Committee later this month.
