In our interactions with others, whether they be public or internal conversations, this campaign will be characterized by our unwavering fidelity to the truth.


We act with purpose and grit firmly rooted in persevering towards a difficult goal regardless of the obstacles and challenges before us.


Every person in this campaign is responsible for acting with good moral character and treating others as they would like to be treated.


As we speak with our neighbors, let us always remember that we are all Iowans and in order to accomplish big things, we must bridge divides where we can, and act as a team. We’re all in this together.

Public Service

If something doesn’t make sense to do or worse yet, is harmful to our neighbors, we simply won’t do it. Ideas must have substance behind them before action is taken.


This is a campaign that embraces and reflects the increasingly diverse state and district where we live. All people who are acting in good faith are welcome to join us.


In all of our exchanges with others, we will be respectful.


“Iowa Nice” is not just a fancy catchphrase. It’s who we are. We will be kind to each other and to all we meet.


We will be bold in our values and communicate them in a no-nonsense fashion.


As we are going through difficult times, it is more important than ever for us to lift up each other and all we encounter. As the old saying goes, you can light a candle or curse the darkness. Always choose to be the light.
