State Representative Tyler Olson stopped by Books-A-Million in Ames on Saturday during an early campaign stop.
Olson talked about the need to improve the economy and the state’s education system. Olson said he understands working at the statehouse and knows an election will be a lot of work.
“Somebody asked if I was prepared for the chaos of a statewide campaign and I said my life gets quieter when I leave the house but it is definitely a lot of work and important work,” Olson said.
It’s time for a governor of the future to understand how the world is changing,” he said.
Des Moines State Senator Jack Hatch and former Representative Bob Krause of Des Moines have announced they will seek the Democratic nomination for Governor.
Five-term Republican Gov. Branstad has not officially announced his intentions to run for re-election. He said he will make that decision in 2014.
