Pro-life voter for Bradley in House District 66
May. 4, 2022 8:34 am
On June 7, Republican voters will go to the polls to select a candidate to represent the Republican Party for Iowa House District 66 on the ballot in the November elections. Both candidates have served in the Iowa House of Representatives, but due to redistricting are now running against each other to determine who will represent the Republican ticket in Jones County and most of Jackson County in the newly mapped House District 66.
A key issue separating the two candidates will be the right to life, a tenet of the Republican platform and an issue that both candidates say they support, but actions speak louder than words and voting records don’t lie.
In 2021, the Iowa House proposed and voted on House Joint Resolution 5. This bill would allow Iowans to vote on an amendment to the Iowa Constitution that would stipulate that Iowa does not recognize abortion as a right and would not require public funding for same.
Lee Hein was one of three Republican representatives who voted against allowing the proposal on the ballot in November. Steve Bradley voted in favor of placing the proposed amendment on the ballot.
I hope you’ll join me in supporting Steve Bradley for House District 66.
