Iowa Family PAC Reacts To Primary Results

6/9/10 Des Moines, IA – With the primary election over, and the candidates for the November election identified, Danny Carroll, speaking on behalf of the Iowa Family PAC said, “While we are disappointed by the results of the primary election, we offer our congratulations to the GOP gubernatorial nominee Terry Branstad.”

Carroll continued, “During this primary, the Iowa Family PAC stood firm on principles drawn from the Bible, and participated in a way that we believe honored God.  Our political involvement during this primary is indicative of our future intentions.  We will continue to look for candidates who share our biblical worldview and who will boldly defend the constitution.”
