Senator Jack Whitver of Ankeny has been named a Friend of Iowa Business by the Iowa Industry PAC (IIPAC), the political action committee of the Iowa Association of Business and Industry. Whitver is seeking re-election to Senate District 19 in Polk County.
The Iowa Industry PAC 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 voting records in past legislative sessions. The selections are made by the IIPAC board, which is comprised on 11 bipartisan ABI members from across Iowa.
“Senator Whitver has demonstrated a commitment to improve Iowa’s business and regulatory climate so that employers can create more jobs and grow the economy,” 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 Republicans 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.
