May 7, 2020

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce and the BIPAC Action Fund, the political action committee of the Business Industry Political Action Committee (BIPAC), recently unveiled their endorsements of State Sen. Randy Feenstra in the crowded 4th Congressional Republican Primary. Feenstra, a three-term senator, is one of four individuals challenging longtime incumbent Congressman Steve King for the Republican nomination. According to a Des Moines Register article, this is the first time the chamber has endorsed a challenger to a sitting incumbent since 2016. Sen. Feenstra is a former Ways & Means Chair who has floor managed several pro-business pieces of legislation during his time in office including statewide preemption of wages and benefits, property tax transparency and income tax reform. During his campaigns for the State Senate, Feenstra was endorsed by IIPAC as a Friend of Iowa Business.
