State Sen. Ken Rozenboom is a quiet, diligent presence in the Iowa Capitol. Rozenboom is a reliable conservative in the Iowa Senate and he should be re-elected.

Rozenboom put his name on a number of bills that conservatives can rally around — creating the criminal offense of female genital mutilation, strengthening religious liberty in Iowa, an abortion neutrality amendment as well as a bill instituting the death penalty when a minor is kidnapped, raped and murdered.

In the two years I’ve spent at the Capitol, I haven’t seen Rozenboom get too upset, angry or excited about much. Instead, he just provides stable, sound leadership when needed and works hard for his district.

One of the things I appreciate most about Rozenboom is that he organized a showing of the film Unplanned at the Capitol during the session. It wasn’t something he had to do or even would be expected to do, but he did it for good reason.

“All of my colleagues, whether they want to acknowledge it or not, they’re aware of this movie,” Rozenboom said. “I think showing it at the Capitol, even though many didn’t show up, they know it’s here and they know there’s a message here. That was my intent — to use the tools that are available to me to use to speak on behalf of the unborn.”

Rep. Art Staed (D-Cedar Rapids) criticized the viewing.
