Good afternoon folks –

With Congressman Bruce Braley holding an event at the University of Iowa, we wanted to pass along this statement from the Republican Party of Iowa:

“In an effort to jumpstart his lethargic campaign, Congressman Braley is once again turning to controlled events. Students should be wary of Congressman Braley, given that many recent graduates are underemployed because his support of job-killing regulations and higher taxes, which has made it harder for businesses to hire graduates.” said RPI spokesman Jahan Wilcox.
