Republican Senate candidate Mark Jacobs was recently endorsed by Iowa Secretary of Agriculture Bill Northey.
SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) -
The Iowa primary is coming up on June 3rd and Republican candidate Mark Jacobs made a campaign stop in Sioux City Friday.
Jacobs was recently endorsed by Iowa Secretary of Agriculture Bill Northey, who says that it's important for Iowa agriculture to have a proven business leader like Jacobs in office.
With just 18 days remaining before the primary, Jacobs is focused on growing the private sector.
But he supports the farm bill, and says that in Iowa, agriculture is more than a business - it's vital to Iowans.
With his background in business, he believes he's positioned to earn the vote of Iowa farmers.
"I understand the commodity of the business, I understand the risk profile of the business, and I think I'm someone who could represent the interest of the people in the agricultural field very well," said Jacobs.
Jacobs is running against four other candidates for the Republican nomination - Sam Clovis, Joni Ernst, Scott Schaben and Matt Whitaker.
