This episode we are returning to our look at the Republican candidates in Iowa Senate District 1. There is a three-way contest for the Republican nomination to challenge State Senator David Johnson (I-Ocheydan) who was elected as a Republican, but left the party after Donald Trump was nominated for President. The first candidate, Zach Whiting, joined the podcast on April 10th. Today, our host Shane Vander Hart interviews Brad Price who also seeks the nomination.

Price has lived in Spencer and the Lakes area in Northwest Iowa for over 45 years, 39 of these years spent with his wife, Lori.  They have 2 children and 5 grandchildren.

A 1978 graduate of Spencer High School,  Price is 59 years old and has been in business for over 40 years in Northwest Iowa.  Throughout these years, his numerous businesses have employed hundreds of people which he says is a compliment to his strong business sense and commercial development commitment to the area.  Price says he is very passionate when it comes to economic development in Northwest Iowa. His political message is simple, “Keep Iowa Strong with a Common Sense Approach to Government.”

Vander Hart asked Price about why he decided to run to serve Iowa Senate District 1, his qualifications and experience, where he stands on life, education, taxes, spending, and religious liberty.

We also plan to interview Jesse Wolfe, the third candidate running in the Republican primary for Iowa Senate District 1, as well as,  as many candidates in other contested primaries as we can in order to help educate our listeners prior to the June 5th primary.

Update: Here is our interview with Jesse Wolfe.

2nd Update: Price clarifies some comments he made about the life issue.

  1. Thank you for interviewing these candidates! I was shocked to hear him announce he is both pro abortion and does not support defunding planned parenthood. I do not see how he could represent this district with these views.
