Update: Senate Minority Leader Paul McKinley won't be around to fight for his job in person when Shell Rock's Bill Dix tries to lead a little capitol coup to take over his job, according to another senator, who wished to keep his name out of this. A senate staffer said McKinley is on vacation in Italy with his wife for their anniversary. I'm curious how this power play with go over with other senators. Jason Clayworth already has a story up on the Des Moines Register that Urbandale's Brad Zaun doesn't like the timing of all of this.
What do you think of it? Wise strategic move by Dix? Or lame attempt for leadership when the current leader celebrates his anniversary?
