Tallahassee, FL - Another Saturday in Iowa was well-spent for Ron DeSantis. From meeting with police officers and fire fighters to attending the famed Iowa vs Iowa State game with Governor Kim Reynolds, DeSantis visited three more counties in this swing through the state as a special guest of Never Back Down, bringing his total to 56. The trip comes the same morning as DeSantis' op-ed supporting Iowa farmers was published in the Des Moines Register. Read the op-ed here.

DeSantis started off the morning with a stop at Natural Grind in Grundy County to have coffee with caucus-goers.

Then, DeSantis attended the 145th Annual Iowa Firefighter's Association Convention in Hardin County.

The rest of the day was spent at the famed Cy-Hawk Game, where DeSantis attended a tailgate with the Iowa Corn Growers Association and became an associate member of the group.

He then headed over to a tailgate hosted by Veterans on Duty and the Bastion Institute with Senator Joni Ernst, and then to the Iowa State Westling Club's tailgate.

At the tailgates, he also visited with Iowa Representatives Ashley Hinson, Randy Feenstra, and Zach Nunn.

At the game, DeSantis sat with Governor Kim Reynolds and Carson King, the Iowa Legend. He also visited with Iowa Representative Mariannette Miller-Meeks.
