For Immediate Release
Tuesday, December 2, 2013

Council Bluffs, Iowa-Jake Porter, a Libertarian candidate for Iowa Secretary of State, has finished production on his first television ad titled “A New Leader A New Direction”.

Porter, 25, was the 2010 Libertarian nominee for Secretary of State. In 2010, Porter received 33,854 votes in the general election, covering the margin of Republican Matt Schultz’s victory over Democrat Michael Mauro.

Porter earned his Bachelors Degree in Business Administration from AIB College of Business in Des Moines. After college, Porter moved to Nebraska where he worked as a retail store manager. Today, Porter lives in Council Bluffs and handles customer care issues for a large Internet corporation in Omaha. In addition to his private sector work, Porter has managed and advised several political campaigns.

According to Porter campaign this is the first time they are aware of a Libertarian candidate producing a television advertisement in Iowa. “This campaign will be one of the best campaigns in the history of the Libertarian Party of Iowa” Porter promised supporters. “TV ads, radio ads, direct mailings, and a strong door-to-door campaign is what we are planning”.

Although Porter has own political positions, he has questioned his opponents for their heavy ties to partisan politics. “As Secretary of State, I would not endorse any political candidate like Matt Schultz did when he supported Rick Santorum for President. Additionally, I do not have ties to one of the two major political parties like Brad Anderson does. Unlike Anderson, I have never advised or worked for John Edwards or President Obama. We need someone who is independent of the two major political parties to act as a referee and that is the type of candidate I am.” Porter said.

In addition to keeping the office independent and transparent, Porter wants to make starting a business in Iowa easier. His highest priority is maintaining safe and secure elections without disenfranchising the voters of Iowa.

The Libertarian Party will select their nominee for Secretary of State at their annual convention in March.
