Iowa State Senator Nancy Boettger Endorses Brownback for President
13-year Iowa legislature veteran cites agricultural, social, economic issues

 
DES MOINES U.S. Senator Sam Brownback today announced that State Senator Nancy Boettger of Harlan, a 13-year veteran legislator, has endorsed his presidential campaign.
 
"As a farmer, I know that Senator Brownback understands the economic issues and social values of the agricultural community," said Boettger. "Senator Brownback grew up on a farm in Kansas, was the youngest state secretary of agriculture in Kansas history, and learned from a young age the Midwestern values he shares with Iowa."

Boettger, a farmer, former educator and mother of four, is an Iowa State University graduate and serves on the Agriculture, Appropriations, Education and Human Resources committees. She is the ranking member of the Education Appropriations Subcommittee.

Boettger added: "As a former educator, I know the importance of Sunday school values in our children's lives. Senator Brownback proudly invites God back into our schools and public square, and he knows we must get the basics right to secure a prosperous future for our children and our grandchildren."

Brownback has also been endorsed by Iowa State Senator Mark Zieman of Postville.

"I am honored to welcome the support of State Senator Nancy Boettger, a principled, accomplished woman with roots in America's Heartland and a strong background in Iowa's agriculture and education communities," said Brownback. "I am humbled that she will help me bring our shared Midwestern values to the White House."
