May 30th, 2011 by Ric Hanson

A Council Bluffs insurance agent was recently selected to become a member of Republican Mitt Romney’s Iowa Presidential Leadership Team. Steve Cates, a former Pottawattamie County Republican Party chairman says he was approached by the Romney team to join the group because of his support of the former Massachusetts governor and businessman’s presidential campaign in 2008.
Cates says Romney is a “Proven leader,” and “Everything he has done has been successful.”
Other members of Romney’s leadership team include Bettendorf resident Brian Kennedy, a former state GOP chair; House Rep. Renee Schulte of Cedar Rapids; Polk County Republican Organization chair Connie Schmett; GOP activist Alan Lucken of Akron; and Rose Kramer of Dubuque, a former state GOP Central Committee member.
