The day Iowa businessman Mark Jacobs has worked towards is now a sunset away.
The Republican Candidate, known for his successful business career, is on the election ballot for the first time.
On the eve of the election, he walked door-to-door in Davenport, introducing himself to Iowa voters, in hopes of winning their approval.
“I just finished traveling to all 99 counties in Iowa in 99 days,” Jacobs said. “This is just another way for me to reach out to voters.”
Tuesday, Jacobs began his journey through Davenport in the 4000 block of Glendale Blvd.
“Hi my name is Mark Jacobs and I’m running for United States Senate,” he would say, shaking the hands of those who answered. “Let me tell you a little bit about myself.”
Jacobs would brief voters on his background; emphasizing that he’s a businessman, not a politician.
“I’ve never run for office, but I feel like we need some real world experience in Washington,” he would say to person he talked to.
Jacobs is one of five Republicans running for the Senate spot. Fellow Republicans Sam Clovis, Joni Ernst, Scott Schaben and Matt Whitaker are also on the ballot.
Voting polls will open at 7 a.m. and close at 9 p.m.
