Today, President Donald J. Trump announced his senior campaign staff in Iowa, approximately one year before Republicans cast their vote in the First-in-the-Nation Caucuses.
President Trump has always looked out for the men and women of Iowa who have been consistently left behind by not only Democrats, but by the RINO establishment. President Trump protected Iowa Ethanol. He approved E15 for use all year round and authorized its use in gas pumps nationwide. He negotiated America First trade deals that opened new markets for Iowa farmers and ranchers in Japan, the European Union, and South Korea, and surged exports with the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement. To protect generations of Iowa farmers and business owners, President Trump virtually eliminated the unfair estate tax and enacted record tax cuts for the middle class.
Hard-working Iowans know that under Joe Biden’s failed leadership, it is more difficult to provide for their families and secure their future.
Since he announced his campaign to return to the White House, President Trump has laid out a bold agenda to rebuild the economy, deliver border security, restore safety to every American community, and end the cycle of corruption in Washington.
Marshall Moreau, State Director. Moreau will lead an unrivaled caucus organization throughout Iowa’s 99 counties. Most recently, Moreau successfully managed the campaign of Iowa Attorney General Brenna Bird, who defeated the longest-serving Attorney General in American history. Moreau has led national, state, and local political operations and has extensive experience in grassroots organizing.
Iowa House Representative Bobby Kaufmann, Senior Advisor. First elected to the Iowa House of Representatives in 2012, Kaufmann serves as the Chairman of the Ways and Means Committee. Kaufmann has been a part of Iowa Republican politics from an early age, clerking in the Legislature, working on local and statewide campaigns, and previously serving as the Chairman of the Iowa Federation of College Republicans. In addition to his service in the State House, Kaufmann is a small business owner and livestock farmer in Cedar County, Iowa.
Eric Branstad, Senior Advisor. Branstad successfully led President Trump’s 2016 and 2020 campaigns in Iowa and is the son of former Governor and U.S. Ambassador Terry Branstad. He served as Senior Advisor at the Department of Commerce during President Trump’s Administration, and has successfully managed political and issue advocacy campaigns across Iowa and the nation.
Alex Latcham, Early States Director. Latcham will oversee the campaign’s political operations in Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina, and Nevada. A graduate of Drake University in Des Moines, Latcham previously worked at the Republican Party of Iowa, and planned the state’s 2016 caucuses. Latcham served in The White House Political Office, where he was Deputy White House Political Director for the final two years.
“As Democrats destroy decades of tradition, we must always protect Iowa’s First-in-the-Nation Caucuses,” President Trump said. “I’m the one who did it this time and you will always be first with me. It was my great honor to get $28 billion for our farmers, as China took advantage of them for years. And don’t forget the USMCA, replacement to the horrible NAFTA. With this incredible team of skilled professionals and their deep ties to Iowa, we will earn a dominant victory in the caucuses next year.”
