WEST DES MOINES – Republican U.S. Senate Candidate Mark Jacobs today filed his petitions at the Iowa Secretary of State’s Office to appear on the ballot in the June 3 primary, after exceeding requirements.
“Since announcing my candidacy in November 2013, I have been humbled by the support that my family and I have received from Iowans across the state. Today marks another important step in my campaign. I look forward to speaking with and hearing from Iowans about solutions to the top issues facing our country, including what it will take to get the economy going in the right direction again and reining in our debt and deficits,” said Mark Jacobs.
As of today, Mark easily exceeded the Iowa Secretary of State's ballot access requirements and collected signatures from all 99 counties, 4,715 signatures in total.
Jacobs is a proven business leader who will focus on creating jobs and opportunities for all Iowans. His five priorities for aiding job growth include: emphasizing community colleges and vocational schools to close the skills gap, expanding domestic energy production, tackling job killing regulations, implementing a competitive tax policy, and reforming healthcare.
