BIPAC Action Fund Endorsed Winner
Rep. Rod Blum (R-IA) is running for re-election in Iowa's First Congressional District.
Prior to joining the U.S. Congress, he was a businessman from Dubuque. He began his career in the software industry and grew his company from five employees to 325 in five years. He won “Iowa Entrepreneur of the Year” in the “High Tech” category. He is also a real estate developer, high school basketball coach, student pilot, and conservative columnist.
Blum's campaign website's page on the economy states:
"We need to cut the cost of doing business in America – lower healthcare costs for everyone, lower tax rates on American businesses, lower energy costs and reduce regulations that have crossed the common sense line. I will also incessantly work for lawsuit reform; American businesses bear the largest litigation costs in the world."
