Becomes First Republican Candidate in Current Field to Complete Tour
WEST DES MOINES – On November 19, 2013, 99 days ago, Mark Jacobs announced that he was seeking the Republican nomination for Iowa’s U.S. Senate seat. Since that time, Jacobs has worked tirelessly to successfully visit each one of Iowa’s 99 counties.
Other candidates seeking a statewide office will also visit all 99 counties, however none in this election cycle will have done so in such a concentrated period of time. This accomplishment speaks to Jacobs’ commitment to put in the hard work necessary to run a successful statewide campaign.
During events, Jacobs shared his focus on creating jobs and opportunities for all and listened to concerns from fellow Iowans on a variety of topics.
“Iowans all over the state have expressed to me a deep concern that this country is continuing to head in the wrong direction. They are worried that the American Dream is slipping away, and our elected leaders in Washington are unable to solve problems,” said Mark Jacobs.
The top concerns people shared with Jacobs centered on the country’s runaway debt and deficits, the negative realities of Obamacare, and the real-world impacts of overly burdensome government regulations.
Jacobs said, “Like many Iowans, I am frustrated by the lack of results in Washington. But I remain optimistic about this country’s future. And, as Iowa’s next Senator, I will take what I have learned in the private sector and work with officials – on both sides of the aisle – to implement conservative solutions to the problems impacting Iowa families and businesses.”
Jacobs will continue to visit with concerned Iowans as the race moves toward the Republican primary on June 3, 2014.
