Iowa Conservative Movement and Republican Leaders Support Reynolds-Gregg Team
Today, the Reynolds-Gregg team announced that several distinguished Iowa conservative leaders are endorsing Governor Kim Reynolds and Lt. Governor Adam Gregg’s campaign to build a better Iowa. These are the latest group of strong Iowa conservatives to get behind the Governor and Lt. Governor.
Combined, these individuals make up hundreds of years of experience fighting for common-sense conservative Iowa values like fiscal responsibility, individual liberties, and smaller government. They also believe the Reynolds-Gregg team is best suited to champion these values as they continue to work for more good-paying jobs, a reformed tax code, innovative schools that give Iowa students a 21st century education, a better-trained workforce, and freedom from burdensome regulation.
Governor Kim Reynolds highlighted her shared commitment to these conservative values and welcomed their support saying, “Growing up in a small town had a big impact on my life. It’s where I learned the values that still guide me today. These leaders share those fundamental values of hard work, love of country, faith, freedom, personal responsibility and have been working to advance them for decades.”
She concluded, “I am honored and humbled to have these conservative leaders as a part of the team and I look forward to working with them.”
Lt. Governor Adam Gregg echoed the Governor’s comments, “I am proud to be a part of this robust grassroots campaign to build a better Iowa. The Governor and I will always stand behind the values that we grew up with, and we sincerely appreciate these conservative leaders uniting behind our message.”
Robert Cramer said, “In the capitol I saw Governor Reynolds fighting for our issues and it was on a missions’ trip that I got to see her heart. She and Lt. Governor Gregg will never apologize for who they are or what they believe, which is why I am proud to support them today and look forward to helping their campaign in the coming months.”
Steve Scheffler said, “Governor Kim Reynolds is a tested conservative who’s never afraid to stand up for what she believes in. Governor Reynolds has stood tall for the unborn, Israel, religious liberty, and a host of other issues important to faith-based voters. As someone who connects regularly with grassroots Republicans, she understands their concerns and fights for those values.”

The Governor and Lt. Governor’s campaign has been rapidly organizing all over the state of Iowa. The campaign has recruited well over 1,050 county chairs in all 99 counties and that number continues to grow each day. The campaign is Co-Chaired by US Senators Ernst and Grassley, Congressman Rod Blum, and Secretary of Agriculture Bill Northey. This impressive team further shows that the leadership of the party is united in its efforts to build a strong grassroots campaign to help elect Republican leaders up and down the ballot, and ensure that Governor Reynolds and Lt. Governor Gregg can implement their vision for building a better Iowa for many years to come.
