Please make a note on your calendar that Bob will join the weekly Iowa Press discussion this Friday, September 23 at 7:30 PM and Sunday, September 25 at Noon. Please plan on tuning in!
In addition to visits with media, Bob remains busy on the road visiting with Iowans.
Please enjoy the highlights of these visits by viewing our New Campaign Chronicles below.
Thompson Reception Part 1 - West Des Moines
Marge and Bob Thompson hosted a wonderful reception in Dallas County and I thoroughly enjoyed meeting their friends and co-workers. Not only did I have the opportunity to visit one-on-one with many of those in attendance, we had a great question and answer session as a group. It always encourages me when I see the faces of Republicans light-up as they hear about tough issues: If the federal government is not going to do something about illegal immigration, then Iowa will do something about it…Federal dollars do not belong in Iowa classrooms…gambling is not true economic development. We had a great night, and I thank my friends Bob and Marge for their enthusiastic support.
Iowa State Fair - Des Moines
What a great way to spend a day! I had a lot of fun meeting people from across the state, and especially enjoyed seeing a former student of mine! We had the opportunity to visit with Dr. Troy Scheuermann from Van Buren County, Vander Plaats County chair in 2002 and 2006. It was wonderful to see so many people, like Norm and Corky Rosendale from Jasper County, volunteering at the Republican Booth and working on behalf of our campaign. I also enjoyed seeing the many FFA and 4H exhibits and talking with students about their fair projects. Iowa has some of the best, hardest-working students anywhere in the country! Of course, we ate everything-on-a-stick and drank ice cold, fresh-squeezed lemonade and stopped by the Wooden Shoe to visit with the people from Pella. Many thanks to all of our great volunteers that helped make the State Fair a success for the Vander Plaats for Governor Campaign!
Woodbury County Fair - Moville
What a beautiful morning at the Woodbury County Fair! It was great spending time with Mel Adema, Scott Corrie, Ken and Carolyn Uhl, Ken South and many more. I enjoyed visiting with many of the vendors at the Varied Industries Building, including Len Grasso, a small business owner from Sioux City. I also had the opportunity to thank Cal Tyer for his more than 6 years of service as the Woodbury County Fair Manager. Special thanks to Chief Deputy Greg Logan, of the Woodbury County Sheriff’s Department, for making the fair a safe and fun experience.
Other additions to the Campaign Chronicles also include:
