The former head of the Iowa Democratic Party made it official – Tyler Olson is running for governor.
Olson, who currently represents District 65 in the Iowa House of Representatives, made the announcement Tuesday, July 9, 2013 in Cedar Rapids.
Olson is also a vice-president at Paulson Electric, which was started by his great-grandfather.
Olson said he is eager to provide a fresh vision for the future of the state.
“I think Iowans are ready to begin the next thirty years instead of living at the end of the last thirty. I have the experience and energy to lead us into Iowa’s next chapter,” Olson said.
