Hoefling went on to criticize Branstad's work on bullying. He does not believe that is the role of the governor.
"We shouldn't be electing governors to micromanage the behavior of children," Hoefling said. He added that the office is "governor," not "state daddy."
"Bureaucrats do not teach children," Hoefling said.
The governor, and all government should only perform those tasks that the average person cannot do himself or herself, such as protecting the rights of all people and providing national security. He believes that if government gets away from performing other tasks, it would benefit the state.
We intend to speak with Hoefling more before the June 3 primary. For more information, visit http://www.tomhoefling.com.
