King is the Republican incumbent for Iowa’s 4th Congressional district, which covers all of northwest Iowa. He will face Democratic challenger Jim Mowrer in the November election. Lt. Gov. Reynolds is again running on the Branstad/Reynolds ticket for the opportunity to remain in leadership for the state of Iowa.

King spent six years in the Iowa Senate before being elected to Congress in Iowa’s then new 5th district in 2002. Among his House responsibilities are serving on the House judiciary committee as a member of the Constitution and immigration sub-committees. He also is a member of the agricultural and small business committees and chairs the powerful House caucus, the Conservative Opportunity Society.

Reynolds was elected Lt. Gov. on Branstad’s ticket in 2010.  Reynolds  understands the importance of fiscal responsibility, job creation, education, and technology. She has traveled extensively to promote Iowa and Iowa products, as well as tirelessly working to provide access to STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) programs for students in Iowa.

“Congressman King is a powerful social and fiscal conservative who is passionate about the Constitution and serving the people of Iowa,” says GOP county chair Roger Olhausen. “And Lt. Gov. Reynolds is the perfect complement to Gov. Branstad. The committee thinks that the people of Greene County should hear about their commitment to Republican ideals, and that they deserve the opportunity to represent us again.”

Also slated to speak at this year’s fundraiser are Iowa state office candidates Sam Clovis (treasurer), Mary Mosiman (auditor) and Adam Gregg (attorney general). Iowa House Representative Chip Baltimore is also seeking re-election and will address the banquet guests.

The doors will open at 5:30 pm, when attendees will be able to speak personally to the candidates and pick up materials about their campaign. The barbecue dinner will be served at 6 pm, with the program of speakers beginning at 6:45. Tickets are available only from central committee members. Visit the website, to find  committee members.
