Iowa needs a Senator who is not part of the establishment, a Senator who has created jobs and been successful in the private sector. Iowa needs a Senator who understands how to reduce the federal government’s complexity.
Matt Whitaker is that leader. A sixth-generation Iowan and small business owner, Matt worked for over five years on behalf of Iowans as the United States Attorney for the Southern District of Iowa, protecting law-abiding citizens and their hard earned tax-dollars from fraud. He prosecuted cases in important areas such as national security, immigration, income tax and firearms.
Matt and his wife Marci, who is originally from Cedar Rapids, have been married for 20 years and have three energetic children. A Christian who regularly attends church with his family, Matt has built a life on hard work and free enterprise. Matt grew up in Ankeny and graduated from The University of Iowa in less than four years. He was an Academic All-American and a member of the last Hawkeye Rose Bowl football team. He earned both his MBA and law degree from Iowa.
