Statement on Mark Jacobs Entering GOP Senate Primary

Des Moines – Iowa Democratic Party Chairman Scott Brennan released the following statement today on Mark Jacobs entering the GOP Senate Primary:

“Deep-pocketed ex-CEO Mark Jacobs is entering a crowded primary field that is already chock-full of Tea Party candidates.  Iowans don’t need another extremist vying for their votes and Mark Jacobs looks like he’s ready to join the Republicans’ race to the right: whether it’s supporting policies that shut down the government, pushing the economy off the debt default cliff, or attacking a woman’s right to make her own decisions with her doctor.  Mark Jacobs is just another rich businessman who will be an acolyte on Ted Cruz and his faithful Tea Party.”
