Fred Hubbell running for Governor of Iowa

Posted: Updated:

Another person is now in the running for Governor of Iowa. Democrat Fred Hubbell has officially launched his campaign. 

 He is running for Governor because he thinks politicians in Iowa have had the wrong priorities. Hubbell’s priority will be to get Iowa growing by putting Iowans first - not special interests or re-election.

Fred Hubbell provided the following statement:

"As Governor, I intend to get Iowa growing. My priorities are clear: fix Iowa’s budget crisis,  invest in education at all levels to create skilled employees for the future, help grow small and mid-size businesses, and get incomes rising across Iowa. We need to make healthcare more affordable and accessible throughout the state, and invest in modern infrastructure, including high-speed internet services.”

Fred announced his candidacy with a video, “Our Iowa,”  in which fellow Iowans describe Fred’s lifetime of work - alongside his wife Charlotte - to create jobs and improve every Iowan’s quality of life.

Throughout this week, Fred will hold ‘workshops’ around the state of Iowa, where he will participate in substantive, solution-oriented discussions, focused on education and jobs in Iowa.
