Whitver to Seek Re-election to Iowa Senate


ANKENY – Senate Majority Leader Jack Whitver, R-Ankeny, is announcing today he is running for re-election.

“I made a promise to Iowans to implement conservative budgets, reduce taxes and put pro-growth policies into place,” said Senator Whitver. “Since 2017 the Iowa Senate has been leading the way in passing those historic reforms. Iowans have responded by electing more Republicans to the Iowa Senate and maintaining a historically large majority.”


“We kept our promises on funding education with stable, reliable increases, supported law enforcement with bold reforms, and rewarded work and investment. As majority leader in the Iowa Senate, I am proud of the work we have done, but we still have much left to do. With a record budget surplus, it’s time to continue providing more tax relief for Iowans and their families, and give that money back to them with real, permanent tax cuts.”

Whitver will seek re-election in Senate District 23.
