Vilsack files nomination petitions


Christie Vilsack, wife of former Governor Tom Vilsack, has officially placed her name on the ballot for the 4th District Congressional race.

Vilsack submitted her nomination petitions on Thursday which included signatures in all 39 counties in the district.

"I'm running for Congress because this district deserves someone who will go to work for them. I want to take the values I learned growing up in small town Iowa and put them to work in Washington, a place where too many have chosen gridlock and partisan ideology over the respect and cooperation that actually produces results. I know that by working together we can grow communities across this district and strengthen the middle class families that make them great," Vilsack said in a written statement.

Vilsack is challenging Steve King to represent the newly formed fourth congressional district that covers 39 counties from the Missouri River to Chickasaw County.
