Iowa Republicans elect new Senate Majority Leader

Iowa Republicans elect new Senate Majority Leader”

Dix, a Republican from Shell Rock, resigned his Iowa Senate seat and the GOP majority leader on Monday, following release of a video online in which he appears to be kissing a lobbyist at a Des Moines bar.

"All 59 members of the House Republican caucus congratulate Senator Whitver on his selection as Senate Majority Leader and Senator Schneider on his new role as Senate President". In a vote this (Wednesday) morning, the 28 Republicans who remain in the senate, elected Whitver to fill the Leader position.

The Iowa Senate Republicans chose Senator Charles Schneider, a West Des Moines attorney, to replace Whitver as Senate President. The former Iowa State University football player also served as an assistant coach with the Iowa Barnstormers Arena League football team from 2008 to 2011.

According to Governor Reynolds, Senator Amy Sinclair (R-Allerton) is the new Majority Whip and Senator Jake Chapman (R-Adel) is the new Assistant Majority Leader. Republicans haven't indicated what, if any, legislative rules should be updated to address such behavior.
