THE CONSTITUTION IS COMING TO YOU! Rod Blum Announces First District Tour


Dubuque, IA – Republican Congressional Candidate Rod Blum will begin a 20 county tour Thursday. The tour, named “The Constitution is Coming to Your Town” will take him to Main Streets, churches, businesses and town halls throughout the 1st District to meet with fellow Republicans and talk about the issues that face this country.

“It is very exciting to have this great opportunity to talk to Iowa Republicans about what’s most important to them, and about the real issues facing our country,” said Mr. Blum. “I look forward to meeting the citizens of northeast Iowa, and having an open forum to discuss the creation of jobs here in Iowa and across the country as your Representative to US Congress. Restoring our economy is my number one priority”

The “Constitution is Coming to Your Town” tour is designed to give voters a perfect opportunity to interact with Mr. Blum, who is running in the Republican primary for the First Congressional District on June 5th. The winner of the primary will attempt to unseat Rep. Bruce Braley (D) in November.

“I believe voters need a clear choice this November. We must have a true conservative and experienced job-creator on the ballot this fall,” Mr. Blum went on to say. “We know how big government gets in the way. We saw Carter do it in 1976, but the Reagan Revolution returned us to the correct, limited government path. We’ve lived it and we know how it works. I intend to take those policies back to Washington DC.” Key points that Mr. Blum will be bringing up along his tour are the economy, job creation, the national debt, and returning America to the Constitution.
