RPI Statement on Election Night

Republican Party of Iowa Chairman Jeff Kaufmann released the following statement after the results of Election Night:

“Tonight, we witnessed hard-fought and competitive races all across the state. I want to give my undying gratitude to Rod Blum and David Young, two individuals who conducted themselves with political courage and who both served the people of Iowa well.

“Republicans at the state level fought and won on a winning message, and their victory is great news for every Iowan. I want to congratulate Speaker Linda Upmeyer and Senate Majority Leader Jack Whitver for their steadfast leadership in retaining both chambers tonight.

“Tonight, Iowans stood with a Governor who embodies the hard work, vision, and tireless energy that will Keep Iowa Moving in the right direction. Governor Kim Reynolds understands what makes our state tick, and under her leadership we are creating opportunities for all Iowans to be successful in a growing economy.

“I couldn’t be more proud of the work Governor Reynolds has done in office, and I look forward to her first full term in office. Governor Reynolds is truly the best advocate for the #1 state in the country, and we’re just getting started!”
