Iowa GOP Announces Iowa State Fair Schedule

Iowans encouraged to meet GOP leaders, request absentee ballots




DES MOINES – The Republican Party of Iowa today invited all Iowans to visit the Iowa GOP booth at the Iowa State Fair, which runs this Thursday, August 12 through Sunday, August 22. Republican candidates, office holders and national leaders are all planning stops at the Iowa GOP booth to meet the scores of Iowans who come by every day.

 

Iowa GOP Chairman Matt Strawn said, “I encourage all Iowans to stop by and talk with our candidates, to hear their principled solutions for moving this state forward. We’ll also have absentee ballot requests for Iowans ready to send a message that we need principled, conservative government here in Iowa.”

 

Chairman Strawn issued this video invitation to Iowans:

 

 

In addition to meeting fellow Republicans, Iowans have a chance to win a pair of tickets to the sold-out Iowa-Iowa State football game. The theme for this year’s fair is “non-stop fun” and what can be more fun than the traditional in-state rivalry? People can enter to win by texting the word “Cyclones” or “Hawkeyes” (whichever team you plan to root for) to 41513, or enter at the booth. A random winner will be chosen at the conclusion of the Fair.

 

The Iowa GOP booth will be in its traditional location along the North wall of the air-conditioned Varied Industries Building.
