Visits all 99 counties

Jacobs visited all 99 of Iowa’s counties in the 99 days since he declared his candidacy for U.S. Senate, his campaign said on February 25, 2014.[4]

In a press released, Jacobs' campaign said, “Other candidates seeking a statewide office will also visit all 99 counties, however none in this election cycle will have done so in such a concentrated period of time. This accomplishment speaks to Jacobs’ commitment to put in the hard work necessary to run a successful statewide campaign.”[4]
