Iowa Senate Candidate On Gun Rights: #GotBalls?


An underdog Iowa Senate hopeful recently released a campaign video that is just campy enough to be charming. Bob Quast, an independent running a write-in campaign, wants Iowans to know that he has a very personal interest in protecting their Constitutional rights, especially the 2nd Amendment.

In the ad, titled #GotBalls, Quast promises to fight for Congressional term limits and uphold the 2nd Amendment. He then offers a personal anecdote which explains why gun rights are non-negotiable to him.

“If you are the sexual predator and sociopath who murdered my sister Lynette, and you come to my front door to hurt my girls, I’m gonna use my glock to blow your balls off,” he says, with gun in hand.

Quast’s sister was murdered and dismembered by her husband in 1999, which Quast later wrote a book “Life 101”, about.

“Congressman Braley, you have nothing to fear, as we are friendly folks here in Iowa,” he continues later in the ad.

Quast goes on to tell Braley he won’t take his gun to the debate “as long as you agree to leave your elite law degree in D.C.,” a reference to Braley’s recent smear of Senator Chuck Grassley as just a “farmer from Iowa who never went to law school.”
