r.robertThe Roberts for Governor campaign announced that it picked up two additional endorsements of State Representatives – Representative Cecil Dolecheck (R-Mt. Ayr) and Representative Mike May (R-Spirit Lake)  today.  This adds to a growing list of endorsements bringing the current total to seven current or former state legislators in the last two weeks.

Dolecheck, who has served in the Iowa House for fourteen years, touted Roberts’ conservative credentials.

“As both a fiscal and a social conservative, Rod Roberts has been an effective leader for Iowa House Republicans. He’s been a unifying leader for House Republicans, and he will be a unifying leader for the Republican Party of Iowa as our party’s nominee for governor.”

May with six years in the Iowa House declared Roberts to be the person who “Republicans need to be united to win in November. I am convinced that Rod Roberts is the Republican candidate for governor who can unite our party and then win the governorship this fall. I am proud to support his candidacy.”

State Representative Roberts welcomed Dolecheck and May to the campaign.

“I very much appreciate the support from Cecil and Mike. They understand how important it is for Iowa Republicans to be united in the gubernatorial election in November. As both a fiscal and a social conservative, I am ready to unite and lead our party,” said Roberts, an Assistant Minority Leader in the Iowa House. “I thank Cecil and Mike for their support, and I look forward to working with them as our party seeks to take back the Governor’s Office.”
