RPI Chairman Strawn: Vaudt a Good Watchdog for Iowa Taxpayers

Today State Auditor David Vaudt announced he is running for re-election in 2010. He says that decision is largely because of the budget mess here in Iowa. His job is to be the watchdog for Iowa taxpayers. He says Iowa's budget situation will get even worse by FY 2011.

Also today, Republican Party of Iowa Chairman Matt Strawn issued this statement in support of Auditor Vaudt's decision to seek re-election:

"This is great news for Iowa taxpayers. Auditor Vaudt is an independent and principled watchdog for all taxpayers. Dave is an important, but too often lonely, voice for fiscal responsibility in Des Moines, and Republicans will work tirelessly to ensure that voice remains at the Capitol for another four years."
