FILE - In this Thursday, May 1, 2014, file photo, Iowa Senate Minority Leader Bill Dix, R-Shell Rock, center, looks on as Iowa Senate Majority Leader Michael Gronstal speaks on the floor of the Senate at the Statehouse in Des Moines, Iowa. After decades as the crossroads of prairie populists and checkbook conservatives, Iowa has suddenly become solidly Republican like many of its Midwestern neighbors. To act cautiously in light of November’s heavy Republican legislative victories could hurt the GOP’s chances of holding its majority, so it’s all or nothing, Dix said. “That’s what our mandate is, and to me it’s not one that’s very patient.” (AP Photo/Charlie Neibergall, File)
