Today Reps. Matt Windschitl (R-Missouri Valley) and Dave Deyoe (R-Nevada) were elected as Assistant Minority Leaders in the Iowa House.
As Assistant Leaders, Windschitl and Deyoe will work with the leadership team to set the agenda for the House Republican caucus. Working directly with the Minority Leader and Whip, the two will relay information to fellow representatives, while also serving as a point-person on key legislative issues. They also work with new legislative members to ensure a smooth transition.
Windschitl was first elected to the Iowa House in 2006. He works for the Union Pacific Railroad and is also a gunsmith. He and his wife, Ivy, have two children.
Deyoe was also elected in 2006 and is a farmer on his family farm. He and his wife, Deborah, have two children.
“Reps Windschitl and Deyoe are valued assets to our caucus in the House,” said House Republican Leader Kraig Paulsen (R-Hiawatha). “They are both dedicated representatives who will no doubt bring a great deal of insight to our leadership team.”
Windschitl and Deyoe were elected by their Republican colleagues Tuesday.
