Former Iowa Governor Terry Branstad addressed a standing-room only crowd at the Smokey Row Coffee House in Pella Tuesday afternoon during a stop on his campaign announcement tour.

In a ten-minute address, Branstad recognized Pella’s educational institutions and major manufacturers as pillars of the community’s success as part of his overall message to lead Iowa on its “comeback.” The visit to Pella was the second stop in a 17-city tour that began Tuesday morning in Des Moines.
