An owner of a construction company says he is running for Congress.
Robert Cramer is entering the race for Iowa’s 3rd Congressional District.
Cramer is the president of Cramer and Associates, a bridge construction company in Grimes.
Last year Governor Branstad nominated Cramer to serve on the Board of Regents. But Senate Democrats didn’t confirm him.
The 44-year-old is running for Tom Latham’s seat who announced late last year that he would not seek re-election.
