Governor Branstad wrapped up his four-day tour to announce his reelection bid.

His final stop on the Building Iowa’s Future tour brought the governor to Sioux City on Saturday.  There he spoke to a crowd at McCarthy and Bailey’s Irish Pub about his agenda during the legislative session.

He told the crowd that his top priorities for the legislative session were to reduce cyber bullying and work toward a tuition freeze at Iowa’s three public universities.

“We balanced our budget and we’re focusing on things that can get bipartisan support,” said Governor Branstad.

“I’m very hopeful we can have a productive session,” he said.

Branstad is already Iowa’s longest serving governor.  But instead of retiring and passing the torch to Lt. Gov. Kim Reynolds, he said they work better as a team.

“We’ve been working together for the past three years and we’ve really turned things around.  We inherited a financial mess.  Iowa now has a cash reserve,” he said.

Hear the Gov. Branstad’s argument for why he should be reelected and more when he and Lt. Gov. Kim Reynolds sit down on Channel 13’s The Insiders Sunday morning at 9:30 a.m.
