300-pound Romney Sign Now Belongs to Iowa Man

You may remember the 300-pound Romney sign used in backdrops of the former GOP presidential candidate’s campaigns. It is a giant piece of metal shaped like the state of Iowa. Don McDowell answered a Craigslist add, and is now the proud new owner.

The sign is eight-feet-wide and stands five-feet-tall and took three men to move away. McDowell is an avid collector and when the Examiner asked him why he wanted the sign he replied:

“I’ve been going to political events since about the time I could walk so I’ve got signs, buttons and things from the caucuses and the straw poll,” he said. Among the highlights of his collection prior to the Romney sign was a “mini-statue of Jimmy Carter holding a peanut.”

McDowell is a card-carrying Republican, and does not yet know what he will do with the sign. He did say that scrapping it was not an option.
