One of the best things I enjoy about running for Governor is spending time with you. The time I spend meeting, talking and getting to know the people of Iowa is so important to our campaign.
I believe it is the grassroots who will decided this election and that is why I make it a priority to travel the state and tell people about who I am and why I am running for Governor. In the past two months I have been in more than 50 counties. If we have not been in your area, we will be soon!
Please enjoy the highlights of these visits by viewing our Campaign Chronicle video clips on our website.
Cerro Gordo County - Clear Lake
After a great event at David Fischer’s home, we headed to the Furleigh Farm for some good conversation and front porch speaking. I enjoyed talking with Bob Furleigh and Rep. Rayhon, along with many of our supporters. It is always encouraging to see the dedication of our team, and I appreciated having our county chairs from Floyd County, Julie and Jeff Marty, join us from Charles City. Food was provided by Hy-Vee Catering and it was a beautiful day to be outside in Iowa!
Linn County Republican Women - Cedar Rapids
Thank you to Denise Fouts and the Linn County Republican Women for hosting a wonderful luncheon at Elmcrest Country Club in Cedar Rapids. It was great to have the support of our county chair, Nancy Bruner, along with many others, and I appreciated hearing how the Linn County Republican Women are getting books into the hands of kids; an important project that will encourage students to read! It was also fun to see Billboard Bob Klaus in attendance. Sharing my vision for Iowa and listening to the concerns of those in attendance was enjoyable and educational.
Lee County Republican Hog Roast - West Point
Thank you to the Ritter family for hosting the Lee County Republican Hog Roast on their farm near West Point. We had a wonderful time meeting with supporters, enjoying excellent food, and speaking about the issues important to the future of Iowa. It was great to spend time in Lee County. Special thanks to Bob Walker’s family, Collete Lindeman, Joyce Schevers, Larry Kruse, Vince Kruse’s family, and Pauline Ritter, our Lee County Chair for all of your help!
