DES MOINES (AP) — Iowa Republican officials have chosen former State Rep. Danny Carroll of Grinnell as the party's co-chairman.
The Iowa State Central Committee elected Carroll on Saturday. He replaces David Fischer, who stepped down last month to run for the Iowa Senate.
Carroll served four terms in the Iowa House until he lost in 2006. He has been part of the Family Leader, a conservative advocacy group.
Fischer, of Altoona, was elected co-chairman in 2012 after serving as co-chairman of former Texas Rep. Ron Paul's 2012 presidential caucus campaign
