Lubbock Republicans headed to Iowa

Posted: Updated:
LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

The Republican presidential candidates are all over the state of Iowa this week. Soon they'll be joined by members of the Lubbock Republican Party.

The Iowa caucus is less than a week away, but there is no clear frontrunner and some are worried about a split - particularly in the conservative wing of the party.

Local volunteers are headed to Iowa to help the state's Republican party.

They'll be pitching for all the candidates - not just Governor Rick Perry.

You might expect Lubbock Republicans to back Rick Perry, but Lubbock County GOP Chairman Chris Winn says a lot of local Republicans are just as undecided as Iowa voters.

"They're looking for a fighter," Winn said. "They're looking for somebody that will send a clear message of conservative values that turns back what's been going on in Washington, D.C."

So far, six local Republicans have committed to going to Iowa.

Winn says several others have expressed tentative interest and that those who can't go can still donate money to help with the cost of the trip.
