A state senator who criticized college students for lobbying for increased higher-education support announced his endorsement for Congressional candidate Dan Dolan on Tuesday.

In a press release, Sen. Shawn Hamerlinck, R-Dixon, noted Dolan's experience in small business and the energy industry.

"As owner of Dan Dolan Homes, he has proven his ability to create jobs and grow business at the local level," he said in the release.

Hamerlinck also said he believe Dolan's energy experience would help him reduce federal regulations and increase job growth.

Dolan is a Republican challenging Rep. Dave Loebsack, D-Iowa, for his 2nd Congressional District seat.
