(Des Moines, Iowa) Last Thursday, Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds’ campaign launched its third television spot of the campaign titled, “This Is For.” The 30-second ad began airing on television and digital platforms last week and highlighted how Reynolds understands the issues Iowans face because she has faced them herself.

“Iowa families are working harder and harder to get ahead, and that’s why we are cutting taxes and fighting for lower healthcare costs,” Reynolds said. “To every mom, dad, farmer, and small business owner, we are going to fight for you every single day. I know that when you work hard for every dollar, every dollar counts.”

“Governor Reynolds knows what it’s like to balance a checkbook, to work nights and weekends to make ends meet,” Hooff Cooksey, campaign manager for the Reynolds campaign, said. “That’s why she’s fought for lower taxes, and working to lower the cost of health care coverage. Her opponent has a very different story, and he’s looking backwards – hoping to undo all the positive success we have seen across the state.”

Below is the transcript of the ad:

“This is for all the moms and dads who tuck in their kids and then leave for work… 

For all the waitresses and grocery checkers… and for every small town girl with big world dreams. 

I’m Kim Reynolds and long before I was Governor, I was pouring coffee at Younkers and checking groceries at Hy-Vee. 

That’s why we are cutting taxes and fighting to lower healthcare cost. 

Because I know, when you work hard for every dollar, every dollar counts.”
