(DES MOINES) – Gov. Terry E. Branstad today released the following statement regarding last night’s election results:

“Iowa voters once again chose divided government, and their message was unmistakable: They want us to work together in moving this state forward. Just as President Obama and Gov. Romney pledged to work together nationally, I see great opportunities for cooperation here in Iowa. I look forward to working with the Senate and House to improve our schools, make our tax climate more competitive and to continue balancing the state budget. We must continue to make state government more efficient, transparent and responsive to Iowans.

“The election is behind us, and the time to work together lies in front of us. I will work with both parties to ensure we don’t squander this great responsibility Iowans have placed upon us.”
