The Iowa Republican: Gibbons prepares to take on Boswell in Iowa's 3rd CD
Excerpted from this post at The Iowa Republican
Former Iowa State wrestling Coach Jim Gibbons wants to be the third
district's next member of Congress. Gibbons brings the unique
perspective of an athlete, coach, father, husband, and financial
advisor to his congressional campaign. However, after talking with him
for a couple of hours yesterday afternoon, it is clear that Gibbons'
drive, determination, and competitive nature are what will set him
apart from Congressman Boswell should he win the Republican nomination
next June. Gibbons attributes his drive, determination, and work ethic
to his father, who taught him to never accept defeat. "In order to
succeed, you must a have a goal and a plan that allows you to achieve
it," Gibbons told TheIowaRepublican.com. At a young age, Jim Gibbons
found success. At Ames High School, he won three state titles. At Iowa
State University, he was a three-time All-American and won a national
championship during his junior year.
