Iowa GOP chair Kaufmann statement on 2nd District IPTV debate

WILTON, Iowa—Republican Party of Iowa chairman Jeff Kaufmann issued the following statement on tonight’s IPTV debate between 2nd District GOP nominee Dr. Mariannette Miller-Meeks and Dave Loebsack.

“After watching the first debate in Iowa’s Second Congressional District, Iowans saw Dr. Mariannette Miller-Meeks’ competence, deep knowledge on health care and military issues, and specific solutions to reign in Washington, D.C.-dysfunction,” said Kaufmann, a seventh-generation ​livestock farmer and community college professor from Wilton.

“Southeastern Iowans have clear choice in this election. I’m voting for Dr. Miller-Meeks, an independent problem solver, a 24-year veteran of the U.S. Army, a former director of the state public health agency and an experienced physician,” said Kaufmann, who lives in the Second District. “Americans desperately need citizen legislators like Dr. Miller-Meeks.”

“Congressman Dave Loebsack has spent eight years failing to solve problems in Washington. Loebsack has an abysmal record of ​wasteful spending. He votes in lockstep with the Obama administration on issues such as health care, and he lacks vision on America’s foreign policy and reforming veterans’ health care.”
