Come Nov. 8, I will be supporting Rep. Rod Blum for these reasons:
He knows we cannot tax our country into prosperity.
He knows small businesses are the engine of our economy and are being smothered by regulations.
He has business experience and knows what it means to meet a payroll so his employees can support their families.
He has bucked the established leaders in Congress and is not afraid to challenge the elite in Washington.
He has proposed common sense legislation to end or limit perks Congress has had for years.
He has done a good job as our representative his first two years in Congress. He deserves to have another two years to fight for Northeast Iowa.
