POWELL BROADCASTING Talk KSCJ-A/SIOUX CITY, IA 10-11a (CT) "IMPACT" host and MORNINGSIDE COLLEGE economics professor SAM CLOVIS has made it official and announced his candidacy for the IOWA Senate seat being vacated by the retiring Sen. TOM HARKIN (D-IA).
In a statement announcing his run, CLOVIS said, “I believe that government is best, when government is both pragmatic and honest. Right now, we have neither. I am running in an effort to preserve American Exceptionalism for our kids, for our grandkids. I am running to expose the advance of crony capitalism, to halt the outrageous spending of taxpayer money and the wasteful entity that government has become. Lastly, I am running to flip ‘politics as usual’ on its proverbial head. I will not be an establishment candidate, and I will run off the engine of grassroots support from folks all across the great state of IOWA.”
