Today, the Kim Reynolds for Iowa Committee announced that it raised nearly $3.8 million in 2021 and has almost $4.8 million cash on hand, setting the record for most cash on hand ever reported by any Iowa statewide campaign and the most raised the year before an election.

“In 2022, we will continue to fight to protect the health, safety, and freedom of Iowans. This year, we will enact a bold agenda that grows our state, cuts taxes, and promotes choice and transparency in education,” said Gov. Reynolds. “I am so grateful for the generous support Iowans from all corners of our state have given me. With their strong support, the best is yet to come.”

The final report will be filed with the Iowa Ethics and Campaign Disclosure Board by January 19th. The Governor received contributions from residents in all of Iowa’s 99 counties. Over 80% of all contributions are $50 or under. An overwhelming majority of total contributions came from Iowans. This year’s fundraising total highlights the Governor’s deep level of support from every corner of the state.

The previous record for cash on hand was set by Fmr. Ambassador, then Iowa Governor Terry Branstad, who reported $4.69 million cash on hand heading into the gubernatorial primary in 2014.
