DES MOINES, Iowa — Democrats in Iowa have selected a new leader.
The Iowa Democratic Party says Troy Price is the organization’s new chair. The state central committee elected him Saturday from a handful of candidates.
Price has been part of several Democratic campaigns in Iowa, including those of former President Barack Obama and presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. Price also served as the party’s executive director and led One Iowa, an LGBT advocacy group.
Price replaces Derek Eadon, who resigned last month because of health issues. Andrea Phillips, first vice chair of the party, assumed Eadon’s role in the interim.
