Ben Lange

Two-time Republican Congressional candidate, Ben Lange, announced on Facebook yesterday that he is opting not to run in Iowa’s 1st Congressional District in 2014.

Here’s his statement:

First I want to thank everyone who has supported my campaign for United States Congress over the past three years. A special thank you to the volunteers who have contacted me and encouraged me to run in the open 1st Congressional District in 2014. However, with three young daughters who are just beginning soccer, softball, basketball and all the other activities that parents of young children are familiar with, my family and I have decided that I will not be a candidate for United States Congress in Iowa’s 1st District in 2014. There is no doubt that this race is winnable, but it is not the right time for me. Thank you Iowans for supporting this small town candidate from Quasqueton.
