Today, John Archer announced that he has filed the necessary paperwork with the Federal Election Commission, creating an official campaign committee in order to seek the Republican nomination in Iowa’s newly created 2nd Congressional District.
“I’ve taken this first step, because it's time for the United States to get serious about winning the future, and I’m ready to lead. We can no longer accept congressional representation that spends us into bankruptcy or a president who sees business regulation as the solution to the nation's ills,” said Archer.
Archer, Senior Legal Counsel for John Deere continued, “In the long run, countries who keep their financial house in order, protect the freedoms of its people and promote free enterprises will win the future. “
Archer, who has actively been traveling the new second district, concluded, “The reception and support has been great thus far. Iowans are anxious for new representation in Congress that will focus on creating good paying jobs, halting out-of-control spending and defending our constitutionally protected freedoms.”
A formal campaign announcement will follow in the coming weeks. The campaign website is http://www.ArcherforCongress.com.
Archer resides in Bettendorf, Iowa with his wife, Andrea, and their two children. John works at John Deere as a Senior Legal Counsel. Archer also serves on the Pleasant Valley School Board and the Bettendorf Family Museum Board of Directors.
