Iowa GOP state Chairman Jeff Kauffman called in as a guest on “The Cats Roundtable” on New York’s AM-970 on Sunday.
He told show host John Catsimatidis GOP presidential candidate Ted Cruz’s opposition to ethanol is a definitely a “factor” with Iowa voters.
“It’s an important issue out here. I don’t think it’s an issue that will sink or allow one candidate to rise necessarily, but, I mean, it is a factor. Everybody has an opinion out here. If Senator Cruz wants to explain his position, and I know he has an explanation for that, he can take it right to the people out here, and I’m guessing that he will.”
Kaufmann was then asked who would win the election if it was tomorrow, but he refused to answer, only saying Cruz and Donald Trump both have the “inside track.”
