Iowa Democratic Party statement on redistricting proposal

Posted:
DES MOINES (KWWL) -

The Iowa Democratic Party released a statement on Thursday following the release of a new redistricting plan that would put Democratic Reps. Dave Loebsack and Bruce Braley in the same district.

Below is the full statement from Iowa Democratic Party Chairwoman Sue Dvorsky.

"No change in district boundaries can hide the Republican record and their abandonment of campaign promises this session. In 2012, when candidates are running for the first time in the new districts approved by the legislature, Republicans will be forced to explain why they have pushed an overreaching, radical agenda instead of joining Democrats in working to create jobs and strengthen our economy.

"Democrats will be able to highlight their commitment to protecting middle class Iowans in any district across the state.

"Iowa is fortunate to have a nonpartisan redistricting process that serves as a national model. We thank the Legislative Services Agency for their continued work as the redistricting process continues."
