Porter Wins Libertarian Gubernatorial Caucus Straw Poll

Council Bluffs, IA–While attendance for the caucus was low for all 3 of Iowa’s major parties, the Libertarian Party of Iowa was the only major party to hold a straw poll of their announced candidates for Governor.

The results were as follows:

Jake Porter-65%
Marco Battaglia-23%
Uncommitted-12%

“I want to thank my supporters for voting for me in the first Libertarian caucus ever held in Iowa. I am confident in our ability to win the June primary.” Porter said.

Jake Porter is a business consultant from Council Bluffs and was the 2010 and 2014 Libertarian nominee for Iowa Secretary of State.

The Libertarian Party became a major political party in Iowa last year after Gary Johnson received over 2% of the 2016 Presidential vote total in Iowa.
