matt-reisetterWaterloo, IA – The Iowa Industry PAC (IIPAC), the political action committee of the Iowa Association of Business and Industry, has announced their endorsement of Matt Reisetter in the race for Iowa Senate District 30.  Reisetter, who raised more than twice as much money as his incumbent Democrat opponent in the most recent reporting period, was the only challenger in Iowa endorsed by IIPAC in this round of endorsements; the rest of the endorsements went to incumbents and candidates in open-seat races.

“I’m grateful for the support I’ve received from the Iowa Industry PAC and others in the business community,” said Reisetter. “They’re supporting our campaign for the same reason we’re seeing growing support from voters, volunteers, and donors: they agree with our message of limited government, individual liberty, and economic growth.”

In response to the Reisetter campaign’s growing success, State Senator Jeff Danielson (D-Cedar Falls) launched an attack this week on a businessman and conservative activist for donating to Reisetter’s campaign.

Reisetter said, “As for my opponent’s attacks, he’s just trying to raise money and change the subject. It’s just unfortunate that he saw fit to start his negative personal attacks so early; the campaign season is long enough as it is.”

The Iowa Association of Business and Industry (ABI) is comprised of over 1,400 companies that employ more than 310,000 Iowans.

The Iowa Industry PAC is non-partisan and endorses both Republican and Democratic candidates for legislative offices. The committee encourages voters to consider the endorsements when evaluating which candidates will focus on economic issues and help bring jobs to Iowa when voting this November.

Matt Reisetter, the owner of consulting firm SDG Solutions, has been married to his wife Jen for 12 years. Matt and Jen have three young children: Mason, Jillian, and Jentry. Reisetter grew up in Cedar Falls, having attended Valley Park Elementary, Peet Junior High, and Cedar Falls High School. He earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in science from the University of Northern Iowa in 1998.

Senate District 30 is composed of Cedar Falls, Hudson, and portions of west Waterloo and western rural Black Hawk County.
