Cedar Rapids – Building on his organization’s strength, gubernatorial candidate Rep. Tyler Olson has hired Alex Youn as his Campaign Manager. Youn, who most recently served as the executive director for the Ohio House Democratic Caucus, will be tasked with overseeing and guiding Olson's growing campaign to unseat Governor Terry Branstad.
“I’m thrilled to have someone with Alex’s talent and experience leading my team,” said Rep. Tyler Olson. “It’s time for a fresh approach to leadership in Iowa. I look forward to continuing to talk to voters throughout the state about my vision to begin Iowa's next thirty years.”
Youn is making a return to the Hawkeye state, having previously worked for the John Edwards for President campaign during the 2008 Caucuses. Prior to his work with the Ohio House, Youn managed two congressional races, including Congressman Brad Ellsworth’s successful 1st term reelect in Indiana’s 8th Congressional district in 2008. Congressman Ellsworth was reelected with 65% of the vote in a district that John McCain carried with 52% of the vote.
“I’m extremely excited to be returning back to Iowa to help Tyler in his campaign for Governor,” said Youn. “Tyler’s unique mix of experience and energy makes him the ideal candidate to lead Iowa into the next 30 years.”
