Iowa GOP shatters another glass ceiling with first female governor
DES MOINES – “The Iowa Federation of Republican Women looks to the future with optimism and enthusiasm as we congratulate both the first female governor of Iowa and the longest-serving governor in the nation on their historic service to our great state,” said Gwen Ecklund, IowaFRW president. Earlier today, Gov. Terry Branstad resigned as Iowa governor after six terms and was sworn in as U.S. Ambassador to China, followed by the swearing-in of new Gov. Kim Reynolds, a long-time IowaFRW member and the first female to serve as governor of Iowa.
