Iowa GOP selects location for Straw Poll

Posted: Updated:
DES MOINES (KWWL) - The Republican Party of Iowa will host its 2015 Straw Poll at the Central Iowa Expo in Boone on August 8th.

The decision was made in a unanimous vote this morning during a conference call meeting of the State Central Committee.
The Boone location was selected over the Iowa State Center in Ames, The Iowa Speedway in Newton, and Drake University in Des Moines.

The Iowa GOP says the Boone location offers a central location, only 30 minutes from the Des Moines suburbs and no more than 3 hours from the farthest points of the state.

Remaining details of the event will be announced in the coming weeks and months.
