MASON CITY, Iowa – Time is becoming even more valuable for those campaigning and running in this year’s election. On Wednesday Gov. Terry Branstad, Lt. Gov. Kim Reynolds and others made stops around North Iowa to promote the Republican ticket.
Branstad focused on how the country has fallen as a national power under the current administration. He also talked about renewable fuels and Obamacare.
“Russia is on the rebound and they’re picking up territory and they have no fear of us because they know that America is not really strong and does not stand for and what we stood for in the past,” Branstad said.
Reynolds said she’s hoping this election will get the states and federal government on the same page.
“Wouldn’t it be nice if we had a partner in Washington, D.C. at the administrative level that worked with us and not against us that understands the decisions at the state level, that’s where they should be made,” Reynolds said.
