Republicans focusing on elections after difficulties in Senate

DES MOINES (KWWL) -

After Republicans ran into difficulties moving their agenda through the legislature, they say they are focused on the fall election.

According to the Associated Press, Republicans have taken control of the house since 2010, and have been present for the election of a Republican governor.

However, Democrats controlling the Senate have managed to block many GOP efforts.

A republican lawmaker said the party expects this trend to change.

Many measures have stalled out in the Senate including Governor Terry Branstad's education reforms.
