ABI’s PAC Endorses Friends of Iowa Business

May 14, 2024

The Iowa Association of Business and Industry’s (ABI) political action committee (IIPAC) has announced endorsements in three House primary races and one Senate primary race set to be decided on Tuesday, June 4.

“The candidates receiving IIPAC endorsements today have a proven track record of supporting pro-jobs policies that have strengthened Iowa’s business climate and fostered greater economic growth,” said IIPAC Board Chair Kirk Tyler. “IIPAC is proud to designate these candidates, who are also incumbent legislators with the “Friend of Iowa Business” endorsement for the June primary.”

Below is a list of the IIPAC-endorsed legislative candidates by chamber and their respective district numbers.

Iowa Senate

  • District 30: Waylon Brown – Worth, Cerro Gordo and Mitchell Counties and part of Floyd County

Iowa House

  • District 7: Mike Sexton – Sac, Calhoun and Pocahontas Counties and part of Webster County
  • District 54: Josh Meggers – Hardin and Grundy Counties and part of Black Hawk County
  • District 60: Jane Bloomingdale – Worth and Mitchell Counties and parts of Cerro Gordo and Floyd Counties

“The Legislature continues to advance policies that support private sector job growth and these individuals have played a critical role in that effort,” said ABI President Mike Ralston. 

The nonpartisan IIPAC Board, comprised of IIPAC investors and ABI members, makes the Friend of Iowa Business selections. The board encourages voters to consider these endorsements when evaluating where candidates stand on business issues.

Candidates are evaluated on their support for a competitive business climate and their focus on a regulatory climate that enables job creation. Criteria include voting records of incumbent candidates, their stated approach to general business community concerns and input from ABI members and IIPAC contributors.
