Washington, D.C. – Congressman Dave Loebsack released the following statement today after being sworn in at the beginning of the 113th Congress.

“I am honored to have been given the opportunity to continue to serve the great people of Iowa’s Second District.

“As we begin the 113th Congress, we have many issues that must be addressed, and none is more important than boosting the economy and setting our country on a sustainable path.  To do this, we have to work to create jobs and bolster middle class and working families.  We have to resolve our long-term deficit and debt problem, but it cannot be done on the backs of seniors, the middle-class, and hard working families.  I truly believe that our best days are in front of us and with hard work and commonsense, we will be able to move our great country forward.

“I look forward to continuing to serve the people of the Second District and be their voice.”

Loebsack will have two District offices, in Iowa City and Davenport, and will remain in the same office in Washington.  He also has staff based in Burlington and Albia.

CHICAGO – Lt. Governor Sheila Simon will be joined in Chicago on Wednesday by Jesse Tyler Ferguson, a star of ABC’s hit comedy “Modern Family,” to launch marriage equality days of action.

Simon and Ferguson will be joined by marriage equality advocates to encourage Illinoisans to contact their legislators on Wednesday and join a Bow Tie Lobby Day in Springfield on Thursday that urges the General Assembly to pass marriage equality legislation during the January legislative session.

“It is our responsibility to ensure that everyone is treated equally under the law, and right now we have a group of citizens that we are treating as second-class,” said Simon, a longtime advocate for marriage equality and LGBT rights.

Ferguson and his fiancé, Justin Mikita, recently launched a not-for-profit organization called “Tie The Knot,” that sells unique, limited-edition bow ties, with profits going to charitable organizations that are working for marriage equality throughout the country. The bow ties are sold through The Tie Bar, a Naperville-based company which Simon, Ferguson and Mikita will visit on Wednesday afternoon. To commemorate this occasion, Ferguson and Mikita released a limited-edition Signature Black Wedding tie which is available through or by visiting

Illinois would be the 10th state to allow gay marriage.
