OSKALOOSA––Ray Gaesser, who is running for Iowa Secretary of Agriculture, admitted there’s no rest for someone campaigning for that prominent spot.
Gaesser said he’s been out meeting with as many people as possible to share his story and why he believes he’s the best candidate. A hot button issue for anyone running for Sec. of Ag is trade concerns with China. Gaesser said that the concerns are legitimate and the impact is felt.
“There’s a lot on folks’ mind today. It’s really about trade and what’s going on with the United States and China in particular,” he said. “It has already impacted the companies in Iowa that use steel to produce to products their costs have gone up 45% for steel in the last month.”
