Branstad insists he's leaving GOP control to party

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Gov. Terry Branstad says he's focused on helping Republicans win in November and will let party leaders sort out a struggle for control of the state party.

Republican Central Committee board members newly elected Saturday say they plan to replace former state Sen. Danny Carroll as the party's chairman and Gopal Krishna as co-chairman on June 28.

The shift in board members and naming of the fourth new party chairman in 2½ years signifies a return of control to establishment and evangelical conservatives supported by Branstad. Supporters of presidential candidate Ron Paul and his Liberty Caucus took over leadership positions in 2012 and clashed with Branstad and others who began in January to work to regain control.

Branstad on Monday insisted he's letting party leaders make the decisions.
