Monte Shaw

(Des Moines, IA) Two months from primary election day, Iowa agriculture advocate Monte Shaw today released his first radio advertisement of the Third District Congressional campaign.  The ad release, which comes on the heels of weeks of momentum and endorsements for the campaign, focuses on Shaw’s unique experience as an advocate for Iowa agriculture. The ad will be playing on WHO Radio in Des Moines and in other markets in the district.

“Having grown up on a farm, I know agriculture,” Shaw said.  “But more importantly, my life-long connection to agriculture and work with ag leaders like Senator Chuck Grassley have taught me this: when agriculture does well, all of Iowa does well.  Given their important to jobs and the economy, my experience advocating for Iowa agriculture and renewable fuels makes me uniquely qualified to win this race and serve the people of this district – whether they live in a small town or Des Moines.”

In addition to the release of today’s ad, Shaw has garnered the two biggest endorsements of the race so far. Former Congressman Greg Ganske has joined with Jon King, Congressman Steve King’s brother, to co-chair the Shaw campaign. Shaw has also earned the support of Iowa Boy Chuck Offenburger, as well as key agriculture and Iowa Republican Party leaders, including former Chairman Matt Strawn.

Shaw is Executive Director of the Iowa Renewable Fuels Association and a former member of the Republican Party of Iowa State Central Committee.  He has managed a number of Iowa political campaigns, including Grassley for U.S. Senate and Elizabeth Dole for President.  He also served as deputy national press secretary on the Steve Forbes presidential campaign in 2000 and as communications director for DC-based Renewable Fuels Association.  Shaw, who grew up on a farm in Shenandoah, currently resides in West Des Moines with his wife, Tina, and their two children, Eden and Max.
