DES MOINES – This week, the Reynolds-Gregg team announced that Congressman Steve King has endorsed Governor Kim Reynolds and Lt. Governor Adam Gregg’s campaign for Governor. King will be joining the campaign as a state co-chair.
Governor Reynolds was humbled by the endorsement saying, “Congressman Steve King is a strong defender of freedom and our conservative values. He’s independent, principled, and is fighting the good fight in Washington, D.C. You never have to question where he stands. I look forward to him joining us in our effort to build a better Iowa.”
Lt. Governor Gregg said, “Congressman King is a true representative for his constituents and he shares our deep ties to Iowa. He’s a friend, a fellow conservative, and a fighter in Washington. I am thankful for his generous support of our campaign, and I look forward to campaigning with him across Western Iowa.”
In his endorsement, King stressed the broad support for the team, saying, “The Governor and Lt. Governor’s vision for building a better Iowa will result in more jobs, less debt, and more opportunity for all our state’s citizens. Governor Kim Reynolds and Lt. Governor Gregg are best positioned to build a better Iowa and lead the Iowa Republican team to victory in 2018. I am confident in their ability to build a strong grassroots campaign to help all Republican candidates be victorious next November, in every corner of the state, up and down the ballot.”
Recently, several distinguished Iowa conservative leaders endorsed the Reynolds-Gregg campaign signaling an unmatched measure of support among Republicans and conservatives across the state.
The Governor and Lt. Governor’s campaign has been rapidly organizing all over the state of Iowa, her campaign claims. The campaign has recruited well over 3,500 county chairs in all 99 counties and that number continues to grow each day. The campaign is Co-Chaired by US Senators Ernst and Grassley, Congressman Rod Blum, Secretary of Agriculture Bill Northey, and now Congressman Steve King. This impressive team further shows that the leadership of the party is united in its efforts to build a strong grassroots campaign to help elect Republican leaders up and down the ballot, and ensure that Governor Reynolds and Lt. Governor Gregg can implement their vision for building a better Iowa for many years to come.
