DES MOINES – Following the resignation of Troy Price as the chair of the Iowa Democratic Party, a few names have been thrown around to replace him.

State Rep. Mark Smith of Marshalltown announced on social media that he is running for position.

Smith said that he’s “served as an activist, county chair, and legislative leader. I’ll require that breadth of experience to put us back on track to win…”

Price stepped down from his position on Wednesday afternoon, submitting his letter of resignation to the State Central Committee following the caucus debacle from the last week.
