In addition to Shane’s endorsement this morning, Rod Roberts received other endorsements as well, a press release sent last night from the Roberts campaign reads:

The Roberts for Governor Campaign announced today that current State Representative Jason Schultz and former State Representative Dan Boddicker have endorsed Rod Roberts’s campaign for governor. Schultz, who is a seven-year veteran of the Iowa National Guard, is from the western Iowa town of Schleswig and represents Iowa House District 55. Boddicker, who served in the Iowa House from 1993-2005, lives near the eastern Iowa town of Tipton and represented Iowa House District 79.

“Iowa needs new leadership, and I believe that Iowa needs Rod Roberts as its next governor. In my time in the Iowa House, I have found Rod to be a strong advocate for the common-sense, conservative principles that are important to me and my fellow Republicans,” said Schultz, who currently serves on the Economic Growth Committee and the Economic Development Appropriations Subcommittee in the Iowa House.

Boddicker echoed Roberts’s conservative credentials.

“Rod is the type of man we can count on to fight for conservative values, and I strongly believe he should be Iowa’s next governor,” said Boddicker. “By supporting limited-government policies, Rod will be a fresh face to take Iowa in a new direction.”

State Representative Roberts was happy to welcome Schultz and Boddicker to the campaign.

“I am grateful for Jason’s and Dan’s endorsements, and I am excited that they will be supporting my campaign for governor,” said Roberts, an Assistant Minority Leader in the Iowa House. “I’m looking forward to working with Jason, Dan, and the rest of our supporters across the state as we seek to bring new leadership to the Governor’s Office.”
