ABI’s PAC endorses Pate, Clovis as Friends of Iowa Business

October 2, 2014

The Iowa Association of Business’s Iowa Industry PAC (IIPAC) has endorsed Paul Pate in his campaign for Secretary of State and Sam Clovis in his campaign for State Treasurer.

IIPAC evaluates candidates based on their support for a competitive business climate with a focus on creating Iowa jobs. Criteria used to make the designations include the candidates’ positions on issues based on questionnaire responses as well as interviews with members of IIPAC Board. The selections are made by the IIPAC board, which is made of 11 bipartisan ABI members from across Iowa.

“Paul Pate and Sam Clovis have demonstrated a commitment to improving Iowa’s business and regulatory climate so that employers can create more jobs and grow the economy,” ABI President Michael Ralston said. 

ABI is comprised of more than 1,400 companies that employ more than 300,000 Iowans. As "The Voice of Iowa Business Since 1903", ABI works to enhance the Iowa business climate to foster growth and prosperity for all Iowans.

IIPAC is non-partisan and endorses both Republican and Democratic candidates for legislative and statewide offices. The committee encourages voters to consider the endorsements when evaluating which candidates will focus on economic issues and help bring jobs to Iowa when voting this November.
