Election season is underway for Iowa.
On Saturday, Governor Branstad and the long-time state politician hoping to unseat Branstad made appearances across the state.
Iowa Republicans and Democrats kicked off campaign season on Saturday by holding their county conventions around the state. Governor Terry Branstad and State Senator Jack Hatch used the opportunity to make their case on why they should be Iowa’s choice for governor to the party faithful.
Governor Branstad visited Ankeny High School Saturday morning to talk to Polk County GOP members. There the governor touched on several issues including education, jobs and the National Guard.
But Branstad’s main focus was on the reelection campaign. Not only did the governor go after state democrats but he had harsh words for the white house as well.
“Americans are tired of this administration,” Governor Branstad said.
