About the Author

Rob Sand was elected as Iowa's state auditor in 2018. A native of Decorah, Iowa, he previously served seven years as an Iowa assistant attorney general. Reid Forgrave is a newspaper and magazine writer who currently writes for the Star Tribune in Minneapolis. He is the author of Love, Zac: Small-Town Football and the Life and Death of an American Boy.


"In an upbeat personal chronicle Rob Sand describes with narrative anecdotes how a youthful Iowan matured, ever mindful of old-fashioned values. As the country has become increasingly divisive and partisan Sand has opted for an uplifting path of public service built on trust and decency. For a public worn out by political traumas he provides a story about governance as it should be. It makes the reader proud rather than cynical about our great republic."--Jim Leach, former U.S. Congressman (R-IA)
"If you bet that we cannot trust people in politics, The Winning Ticket will call your bluff. This true-crime story is also an inspiring tale of good government and the dedicated people like Rob Sand who deliver accountability. I learned, as Sand's former professor, that he had a terrific legal mind. Reading this book taught me that he's also a gifted storyteller."--Katie Porter, U.S. Congresswoman (D-CA)
"As a former prosecutor I know that you can't try complex cases like the Hot Lotto fraud scandal without tenacity, an eye toward justice, and many late nights. Throughout the case Rob Sand never lost sight of his Iowa values or sworn duty to seek justice. His story is both a gripping true-crime tale and a love letter to the small towns that shape the fabric of our country."--Amy Klobuchar, U.S. Senator (D-MN)
