Iowa House Speaker Kraig Paulsen, R-Hiawatha, has endorsed state Rep. Tom Shaw, R-Laurens, in his quest for the Republican nomination in House District 10.
''Rep. Shaw is a proven leader in the House,'' Paulsen said in a written statement. ''He has worked to build consensus on important legislation affecting small businesses and veterans. He has worked tirelessly to protect and defend Iowans' freedoms and liberties and I am proud to support Tom Shaw's re-election to the Iowa House.''
Shaw faces Maison Bleam, of Twin Lakes, in Tuesday's primary election.
House District 10 includes Calhoun, Humboldt and Pocahontas counties plus western Webster County. There are no Democratic candidates in that district.
