Governor Branstad heads to RNC


Governor Terry Branstad is at the Republican National Convention.

Tuesday he spoke to reporters on the phone from the convention. His focus was the economy under the President's administration. He says this economy has been a disaster for the nation's youth.

"He has encouraged people to borrow all the money they can. That is a bad philosophy and bad idea because when you borrow money, you have to pay it back with interest. That's the trouble for our country. We are $16 billion in debt. Fourteen cents to every dollar we are spending is borrowed money," Branstad said Tuesday.

Lt. Governor Kim Reynolds is also attending the convention.
