Governor Branstad makes history

As we know, Governor Branstad has just been elected Iowa's longest serving governor. But he's not just Iowa's longest serving governor – he's America's longest serving governor as well.

“Iowa, thank you for your vote of confidence. This is a great team effort. Four years ago, I returned to lead Iowa's comeback. Ladies and gentlemen, we've done just that," Branstad said in his victory speech Tuesday night.

"We've laid the foundation to make Iowa the envy of the nation. And I'm proud to say, we're well on our way, but we're not done yet."

"Iowans support our Republican message of a smaller and more efficient government, of good jobs for our citizens, of improved and more affordable education for our kids, and health care that our families can count on."

"Thank you for your support, your trust, and your confidence to build Iowa's future together. Thank you all. God bless you, god bless the state of Iowa, and God Bless the united states of America.”

When we asked Republican strategists what Branstad's first priority will be in his new term they said jobs. Job creation is the governor's top priority.
