Iowa Governor Terry Branstad, a Republican, says he’ll work with Iowa’s divided Legislature.

Democrats kept control of the Iowa Senate and posted gains in the Republican-controlled Iowa House.

Branstad says Iowa voters once again chose divided government, and their message was unmistakable: They want elected officials to work together in moving the state forward.

Branstad says just as President Obama and Governor Romney pledged to work together nationally, he sees great opportunities for cooperation in Iowa. He says he looks forward to working with the Senate and House to improve schools, to make the tax climate more competitive and to continue balancing the state budget.

The governor says elected people must continue to make state government more efficient, transparent and responsive to Iowans.
