Cedar Falls, Iowa – State Representative Walt Rogers announced today that he is ending his campaign for U.S. Congress in Iowa’s First Congressional District; Rogers will instead run for reelection to his State House seat.
Rogers said, “It is no secret that running for Congress requires an enormous amount of money, and raising money takes a lot of time. This week I missed a floor vote in the Iowa House for the first time, in order to attend a campaign fundraiser. While I thought I could balance running a Congressional campaign and my responsibilities in the Iowa House, it became apparent that I must choose between the two.” Rogers continued, “I am extremely proud of my work in the Iowa House; I believe it is the best place for me to continue to make a positive and immediate impact on the lives of Iowans.”
Rogers will file the necessary paperwork for his reelection campaign next week.
