The RGA’s feud with the leader of their own Party continues

RGA Chair and Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds is once again feuding with the leader of her own Party after it was revealed that former President Trump was missing from an invite to be interviewed by the Governor for her “Fair Side Chats” at the Iowa State Fair, which featured several other top tier presidential candidates.

As noted by columnist Todd Dorman with the The Gazette, this feud between Reynolds and Trump is “not like anything we’ve seen before in caucus history,” and Reynolds has “caught [herself] in the usual cycle of loyal Trumpers who get thrown under the bus as soon as he decides they’ve crossed him.”

This is the latest battle between Reynolds and Trump. Earlier this month, Trump attacked Reynolds on social media, claiming that he “opened up the Governor position for Kim Reynolds” in 2018 and attacking her for staying “neutral” in the 2024 Republican presidential primary and for refusing to endorse him.

The RGA has a long history of a harmful and contentious relationship between their chairs and the former President. During the 2022 cycle, former RGA Chair and Arizona Governor Doug Ducey had an open feud with Trump, leading to messy and expensive primaries that precluded the RGA getting outspent and losing in several key races in battleground states across the country.

“RGA Chair Kim Reynold’s bitter, public fight with Donald Trump does not seem to be coming to an end any time soon,” said DGA Communications Director Sam Newton. “As the GOP infighting gets worse, Reynolds and the RGA remain stuck in the middle and it will only continue to backfire in governor’s races across the country this cycle – just like we saw in 2022.”
