West Des Moines, Iowa – Due to the campaign’s early fundraising success, Jacobs for Iowa today went to the airwaves with the campaign’s first radio advertisement.

The 60-second spot, being aired statewide, features candidate Mark Jacobs. The message highlights Mark's Iowa roots, his proven leadership in business, turning around Reliant Energy, a financially-troubled company, and his desire to end the dysfunction in Washington.

Full script below:

Voice-over: In business, leaders are measured by the bottom line. In Washington, leaders are measured by politics and polls. It's time we send a business-tested leader to Washington who has a proven track record in the real world.

Mark Jacobs: Hi, I'm Mark Jacobs. I was born and raised in Iowa, growing up around a small family business. Jobs as a paper boy and behind the deli counter at Hy-Vee taught me the Iowa way. As a business leader, I turned around a large but financially troubled company, working hands-on with employees to build teams and together we protected jobs, paid the bills and turned that ship around.

We did it in the private sector; we can do it in Washington. I still believe in America's promise of growth and opportunity. If you believe it too, join me.

Voice-over: Mark Jacobs… a father, husband, active church member, and business leader.  Educated in Iowa schools, Mark Jacobs, a business success story.

Let's demand success from Washington. Mark Jacobs is ready to work for us in the US Senate.

Mark Jacobs: I’m Mark Jacobs and I approve this message.

Voice-over: Paid for by Jacobs for Iowa.
