Branstad issues statement on Regents nominees:
(DES MOINES) – Gov. Branstad issued the following statement upon learning Craig Lang and Robert Cramer did not receive the required number of votes in the Iowa Senate to serve on the Iowa Board of Regents:
“I am deeply disappointed that most Senate Democrats cast their votes against Robert Cramer and Craig Lang.
“Both Robert and Craig answered the call to public service, and they both deserved the opportunity to serve on the Board of Regents. Craig Lang showed great leadership while on the Board of Regents and Robert Cramer brought unique experience in the construction industry.
“I am greatly disappointed that these two fine individuals were treated in such a shabby manner.”
