On Friday, June 19th, the nation will honor an event that occurred 155 years ago. It is an event that has never received the nationwide attention that it deserves. But it is a day that all freedom loving people in the United States should celebrate. And it is a day that I successfully worked to gain recognition for in Iowa as far back as 2002.
Today is Friday, May 15 and I am in Washington, DC to cast a vote against Speaker Pelosi's $3 Trillion hyper-partisan wish list of liberal agenda items. President Trump has already declared that Pelosi's wasteful bill is "D.O.A.-Dead on Arrival,” and I intend to help him defeat the Speaker's bill and to provide him with a vote to sustain his veto should it ever reach his desk.

During my recently completed 39 county town hall tour of the 4th Congressional District, one of the issues that I discussed at nearly every stop was the importance of protecting the Renewable Fuel Standard’s volume obligations.
Thank you, President Trump.
President Trump once said “we will have so much winning … you may get bored with the winning.”
And you know what? Over the last couple of weeks, my shared agenda with the president has recorded one victory after another. We are winning, and we are winning big. And I’m not tired of winning yet.
