DES MOINES, Progress Iowa, a liberal political group, announced it will launch a website to highlight Governor Terry Branstad’s and Lt. Governor Kim Reynold’s “record of broken promises”.

Progress Iowa said that in response to Governor Branstad’s 7642nd record-breaking day in office this weekend, the launch of a new website: The site will be promoted with online advertising, as well as a mobile billboard. The billboard will drive around the Iowa State Capitol and the fairgrounds starting at Noon on Monday. focuses on what Progress Iowa calls Branstad/Reynolds administration’s “failure to keep their promises regarding job creation, reduced government spending, support for education, and increased family income. Progress Iowa believes these broken promises shouldn’t be forgotten amidst the pageantry of a longevity celebration. Visitors will be able to share each broken promise on social media to hold the administration accountable.”

“Unfortunately, simply serving in office longer than any other governor in our country’s history is by far the most notable achievement of this governor’s administration,” said Matt Sinovic, Progress Iowa Executive Director. “They failed to keep a number of promises, from failing to create jobs to letting Iowa fall behind the rest of the country when it comes to supporting our students. They’ve done a good job staying in office, but a poor job serving their constituents.”

Progress Iowa will also hold a press conference Monday afternoon regarding these developments at the west steps of the Iowa State Capitol.

Progress Iowa claims to be a “nonpartisan multi-issue progressive advocacy organization with a network of nearly 60,000 progressives. Year-round, Progress Iowa advocates for a stronger middle class, first-class public education, and fairness for all Iowans under the law.”
