Branstad RPIChris and I would like to wish you and yours a very Happy Thanksgiving from our entire family.

As you retreat to your meals, fellowship and togetherness, it is a wonderful time to focus on what makes Iowa such a great place to live, work and raise a family.

For us, we reflect on the great times we’ve had traveling throughout the state. We have always enjoyed visiting your community, and always felt welcomed when we did. Recently, I announced that I will again be traveling the state, meeting with Iowans to discover what you all are thankful for – and what you think needs to be done differently in order to make this state thrive once again.

When our campaign comes to your area, I hope you will come out and join me as we discover new solutions to the challenges we face.

You and I both know that with recent hardships in the economy and state government, we are faced with a unique opportunity to make some meaningful, long-lasting changes that put us on solid footing, offering the security we need if we are to grow as a state. Together, we can change the size, scope, structure and delivery system of our state and local governments. No challenge is ever too big when matched with the dedication and hard work of Iowans.

Until then, enjoy your holiday, and please stay in touch in the weeks and months ahead!


Terry and Chris Branstad
