The Iowa Republican touts Newt's latest hires: "exceptional" and "impressive"

Earlier today, Newt rolled out his latest hires in the state that will hold the first nominating contest.

Of Katie Koberg, who was the Vice President of a Iowan fiscal conservative think tank until recently, Craig Robinson of The Iowa Republican said:
Koberg is an exceptional hire for Gingrich. With so many of Iowa’s political operatives now working in state government since the state has a Republican governor for the first time in over a decade, there are not that many operatives with a resume like Koberg’s out there for presidential candidates to choose from.

Over a span of almost six years, Koberg has developed contacts and relationships with legislative candidates across the state through here work at Iowans for Tax Relief. Those relationships, and her knowledge of the political landscape across the state, will be an asset for the Gingrich campaign.
Robinson had the following to say about Iowa House Speaker Pro Tempore Jeff Kaufmann:
Gingrich also announced that Rep. Jeff Kaufmann will serve as his senior policy advisor on Iowa related issues such as rural economies, agriculture and energy. Kaufmann is another impressive addition to Gingrich’s Iowa team. Kaufmann has a large following in eastern Iowa and was a huge asset to the campaigns of Dr. Mariannette Miller-Meeks and Terry Branstad.

  1. Did not see anywhere else in this site to put this so it goes here. I am a republican but I now know who I won't be voting for... Newt. His campaign just started today to use my cell phone number for political calls and that is a very bad thing to do to me since my cell number is on the national do not call list and I reserve it for personal calls only, not sales pitches and advertisements! Using my cell number for recorded calls like this is one of the sure ways to push me away from any candidate. Doing so puts that candidate on the same level as the scammers calling from offshore with bogus offers.
