MASON CITY, Iowa – Election day is over four months away, but for politicians, now is the time to hit the campaign trail.
Iowa Senator Jack Hatch stopped by the studio today with his newly appointed running mate Monica Vernon. He’s running against Governor Terry Branstad.
This past week, the pair have been touring the state meeting with local businesses and folks within the community focusing their message on the importance of job creation and economic growth.
Hatch said,one of his main goals is not to get young people back to the state, but rather keep them here.
“One of the things that we have in the state is quality of life whether or not you live in a small town or a big city. People like Iowa, it is comfortable and we want to make it available to all people.”
Hatch and Vernon made stops in Waterloo earlier today as well.
