After Republican Jon Dunwell picked up a convincing victory in Tuesday’s special election, Gov. Kim Reynolds congratulated him and expressed the message Iowans have expressed in the last two special elections — which have resulted in Republican wins.
“Iowans have spoken loud and clear in these last two special elections about the direction we are taking the state,” Reynolds wrote. “Candidates who stood strongly for parental choice, personal responsibility and pro-growth policies were successful. And we are just getting started.”
How did the Polk County Democrats respond? By saying Reynolds is pushing her “extreme base” to turn out for these local elections.
So, let’s rewind the tape and remind ourselves what Reynolds said…
“Candidates who stood strongly for parental choice, personal responsibility and pro-growth policies were successful.”
Parental choice…personal responsibility…pro-growth policies.
And Democrats describe this as pushing an “extreme base” to get out and vote?
What is extreme about parental choice? Personal responsibility? Pro-growth policies?
The answer: nothing.
