Twenty+ Iowa Republicans Announce Their Support For Carly Fiorina

They cite Carly’s leadership experience, her unique background and her ability to support small businesses

Des Moines, IA – Today, twenty-three Republican leaders in Iowa join the growing list of supporters across the United States to endorse Carly Fiorina as she runs for president. Representative Josh Byrnes, Representative Clel Blaudler, Representative Lee Hein and Senator David Johnson have pledged their support for Carly Fiorina, as have 19 additional supporters, expanding the Iowa leadership team to include over 70 people. 

Representative Clel Baudler (R-Greenfield)
“After studying all of the candidates I have come to the conclusion that Carly is absolutely the best person to lead our nation in the right direction. I believe with her business experience, her ability to communicate, and her fearlessness to take on the tough challenges we face today, she has demonstrated that she is qualified. Her stance on the Second Amendment is important to me, as is her stance on illegal drugs and the illegal use of legal drugs -- because we must take this threat to our nation seriously. I am proud to support Carly Fiorina for president of the United States.”
Representative Josh Byrnes (R-Osage) 
“I support Carly because I am tired of career politicians getting elected and getting nothing done in DC. It's time for a different resume to be elected as the next Commander in Chief. Carly Fiorina has the leadership experience, integrity, and intelligence that our nation desperately needs in the Oval Office. She will make the United States once again a shining example of freedom and democracy.”
Representative Lee Hein (R-Monticello)
“As a staunch supporter of tax relief for all Americans, I believe that Carly Fiorina is the presidential candidate who will finally free taxpayers from the burden of footing the bill for the Federal government's reckless spending. Carly Fiorina will support small businesses because she realizes they make our economy dynamic. As president, I am confident that Carly Fiorina will do what it takes to create the economic environment that will put Americans back to work.”
Senator David Johnson (R-Ocheyedan)
“Carly Fiorina understands that the liberties Iowans and all Americans enjoy are threatened in today's chaotic world. Carly is the candidate who understands that talking points are not what will save this nation. She is ready to be a president of action, and to protect what Americans know to be their god-given rights. I am proud to support Carly Fiorina for president because I know she will honor our constitution, and she will lead our nation to peace and prosperity.”
Additional members of the leadership team:
Lon Anderson, Johnston
Jerry Book, Chariton
Terry Bradley, Newton
Chuck and Kim Brockmann, Long Grove

They will help build a grassroots network of support in Iowa and communicate why Carly’s unique and impressive background is what we need in the next President of the United States.
