New King Radio Ad Features Branstad, New NRCC TV Ad Ties Vilsack to Obama

(AMES) – Rep. Steve King (R-Kiron) today released a new radio advertisement featuring Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad. The 60-second advertisement, titled “My Vote,” highlights King’s work ethic, knowledge of the issues, commitment to serving the Iowans he represents and passion for fighting Washington’s desire to grow the size and cost of government.

“Congressman King has been the voice of Iowa common sense in Washington as he fights ObamaCare, speaks out against out-of-control government spending, works to develop and grow renewable energy and encourages predictability and stability for business allowing them to grow,” said Branstad. “We need more representatives with Iowa values like Congressman King. I’m pleased to be able to cast my ballot for Steve King in Iowa’s 4th Congressional District.”

Branstad has lived in Iowa’s 4th Congressional District the majority of his life. He grew up in Winnebago County and now resides in Boone County. Branstad is Iowa’s longest serving governor, serving from 1983-1999 and 2010-present.

“Nobody loves Iowa more than Terry Branstad. He is a statesman, a leader and a friend who always does what is best for Iowa,” said King. “I look forward to continuing our work together to take Iowa and America to the next level of our destiny.”

The advertisement will air across Iowa’s 4th Congressional District.

The following is the transcript of the advertisement:


Hi, this is Governor Terry Branstad. Let’s talk about one of my favorite people: Iowa Congressman Steve King.

Steve’s a unique and colorful public servant: sharp as a tack, knows the issues better than anyone. He knows how to take Iowa to Washington — then leave DC behind when he comes home each week.

Steve King’s the country’s leading opponent of ObamaCare, always fighting for smaller government and balanced budgets.

Outspoken? You bet, and I like that. We know where Steve King stands. Guess that’s why the Iowa Farm Bureau and Iowa Corn Growers have endorsed him. 

Steve King is a great Representative for Iowa. Join me in voting for Steve King.


I’m Steve King, candidate for U.S Congress and I approve this message. Paid for by King for Congress.


The NRCC has a new TV ad on air against Christie Vilsack. The ad highlights why Christie Vilsack is the wrong recipe for Iowans.

Below please find the script and click HERE to watch the ad. 

CHRISTIE VILSACK: I like to bring a seven layer salad.

ANNOUNCER : Christie Vilsack, most Iowans like her. But everyone likes a seven layer salad.

Lettuce, onion, bacon, peas. But Vilsack’s policy ingredients? Not so likable.

Job killing taxes. Devastating Medicare cuts. And at the bottom of it all-  And then we’ll move forward with the President’s agenda.

Christie Vilsack- Obama’s recipe, not Iowa’s. DISCLAIMER: The National Republican Congressional Committee is responsible for the content of this advertising.

NRCC COMMENT: “Christie Vilsack is desperately trying to feed Iowa families a load of garbage. They understand that Vilsack’s burdensome regulations, tax increases and Medicare cuts will be a recipe for disaster.” – NRCC Spokeswoman Andrea Bozek
