Congressional Republicans have made it official – they’re doubling down on winning Iowa’s Second District. They’ve made our District their first official advertising investment in Iowa, with their Congressional Campaign Chair publicly declaring an effort to spend $1,000,000 against us.
That’s right, congressional Republicans are so committed to electing my opponent – who supports the Ryan Budget and privatizing Social Security – that they’re backing him before anyone else in Iowa. And they’re dumping Washington money into the race to do it.
My opponent’s priorities – whether it’s ending Medicare as we know it, offshoring Iowans’ jobs, or cozying up to Michele Bachmann and Rick Santorum – aren’t Iowans’ priorities. He’s already shown that he’s more interested in getting the backing of Congressional Republicans than in fighting for Iowans.
