While GOP Governor Kim Reynolds’ pro-jobs policies continue to score win after win for the people of Iowa, Democrats in the state continue to put politics above creating good-paying jobs for Iowans. After Reynolds announced on Thursday that Apple will invest $1.3 billion in a new data center in Iowa as part of a deal that will create “hundreds of new jobs for the people of Iowa,” Democrat gubernatorial candidate Nate Boulton naively came out against the deal.
Even after the Iowa Economic Development Authority called Apple’s commitment the “largest ever private investment” in Iowa’s history and Apple CEO Tim Cook called Iowa’s accomplishments in renewable energy a “model for the entire nation,” that they want to be a part of, Nate Boulton still opposed the project, making it clear that he would rather score political points than champion job creation.
Governor Reynolds has made strengthening Iowa’s economy a top priority, securing unprecedented investment and expanding opportunity across the state. Iowa Democrats like Nate Boulton have made it clear they would put politics above job-creation and take the state backwards.
