Iowa Lieutenant Governor Ada Gregg filled in for his running mate, Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds, at a campaign appearance Friday morning in Decorah.

Gregg noted that an analysis by U.S. News & World Report ranked Iowa high in a number of categories--including naming Iowa as the #3 best managed-state and as the #1 state overall in the country.

He asked the audience at Family Table Restaurant in Decorah, "Who do you trust to solve the tough problems?"  He pointed out that the Iowa Legislature passed all of Governor Reynolds' priority legislation during the past session, with many of the votes coming on a bipartisan basis.  He says the results speak for themselves.

Gregg says the latest report is that wages in Iowa have increased 5.1 percent in the last quarter.  He says that's just one more indication the state is on the right track and that voters should re-elect him and Governor Reynolds.
