DES MOINES â€“ Republican Party of Iowa Chairman Matt Strawn tonight congratulated Jack Whitver on his special election win in Senate District 35. The seat covers northern Polk County.
â€œJack will be a strong advocate for conservative principles and private sector job creation. Jack has personal experience creating jobs, and that is just what Iowa needs right now,â€ Strawn said.
â€œAs a small business owner, Iâ€™m ready to tackle the issues that are standing in the way of job growth,â€ Whitver said. â€œItâ€™s time to make Iowa the best place to start a business and raise a family.â€
Senate Republican Leader McKinley welcomed Whitver to the Iowa Senate. â€œJack ran a great campaign and I am confident he will hit the ground running as a champion for more jobs, lower taxes and a smaller, more efficient government.â€
