The Iowa Republican: State Senator Jerry Behn to announce gubernatorial campaign
Excerpted from this post at The Iowa Republican
At a time when many people expect the Republican gubernatorial field
to contract, another candidate is throwing his hat into the ring.
Later this morning, State Senator Jerry Behn will announce his
intentions to run for Governor. Behn will join Bob Vander Plaats, Rep.
Chris Rants, Christian Fong, Sen. Paul McKinley, and Rep. Rod Roberts
in seeking the Republican nomination. Behn, a native of Boone County,
joined his family's farming operation after finishing school, which he
continues to operate today. He is a member of the Iowa Farm Bureau and
the Iowa Soybean Association. He began his political career in 1994
when he was elected to the Boone County Board of Supervisors.
