Sam Clovis(Sioux City, IA)  Today, the Clovis for U.S. Senate campaign announced an additional 100 county co-captains who are supporting his campaign. The total number of county co-captains has now grown to over 300 in nearly 50 counties.

His travels have logged him over 17,000 miles and taken him to over 50 counties in Iowa. “I have had the opportunity to shake hands with many of the wonderful people of Iowa as I travel across this great state,” stated the candidate. “These people are looking for someone who is going to listen to their concerns, represent them in the U.S. Senate and provide unwavering leadership on the important issues facing our nation. I am humbled that these supporters have chosen to support me in this effort.”
