Yesterday I sat down with Christian Fong.  He is the son of a Chinese immigrant and Nebraska farm girl, and as his website claims is a “product of the American dream.”  He graduated high school at 16.  He earned his B.S. from Creighton at 19.  He also holds an M.B.A. from Dartmouth College.

He is currently an executive with AEGON USA in Cedar Rapids and serves as chair for The Generation Iowa Comission.  He also founded and is President and CEO of Corridor Recovery, a non-profit flood relief organization that coordinated recovery efforts after the Cedar Rapids Flood of 2008.

We discussed his decision to run for Governor, why he believes he should be the GOP nominee, spending cuts, his plan to cut the state’s income tax, creating private sector jobs, the Iowa Supreme Court same-sex marriage decision, abortion, school choice, and Iowa’s growing prison population.

Above you can listen (or download) the audio of this interview.  The transcript will be posted in the future.  I hope you enjoy the interview.
