An Announcement from Mark Smith, Iowa Democratic Party Chair

Dear Iowa Democratic Leader,

Today, I am announcing a postponement of County Conventions to a future date to be determined. Attached is the full statement I am sending out.

First, I want to express my gratitude for our conversations over the last week. They were constructive, forward-looking, and showed our resolve to overcome obstacles together.

I cannot express how much I appreciate your patience as we move this process forward. Today and over the weekend, we are continuing our considerations on next steps, which include ongoing consultation with public health experts, legal advisors, and the DNC. We will be as transparent as possible throughout this process and provide updates as soon as possible.

Lastly, as we discussed on the calls last night, the IDP is here to serve as a resource for you through this process. In order to do that in the most efficient way, please review this form to address any of your needs as we work together to ensure a smooth process. 

Thank you, and will be in touch.

-Mark Smith
