The Iowa Democratic Party’s general election efforts are in full-swing, and I would like to thank all of our hardworking organizers and volunteers who are going to make a real difference in November.
We are wrapping up our first weekend of action and opened up eight new offices throughout the state. We’re making phone calls and knocking on doors to make sure we elect Democrats from the Courthouse to the White House. Activists are energized, excited and ready to turn out the vote.
Every vote will matter in November, and we will need a strong voter turnout. Please make sure all of your friends and family are registered to vote at their current voting address. Check here to make sure your current voting address and information is up to date.
Here in Iowa, we want to make it as easy as possible for everyone to vote which is why we have a vote by mail option. Anyone can vote by mail. It is easy, convenient and as simple as filling out this form.
Our United States Senate race is heating up, and polls are showing that Senator Grassley is in “the race of his life.” We are now in the 116th day of Grassley’s obstruction of President Obama’s nomination of Judge Merrick Garland. As a recent letter to the editor pointed out, Grassley’s refusal to hold a hearing sets a “dangerous precedent” for defining of Presidential duties during a second term. Sen. Grassley and Sen. McConnell are attempting to define midterm elections as the kick-off for a lame duck presidency. Unfortunately for Grassley, Iowans aren’t buying it, and they are furious with his partisan tactics and his refusal to do his job.
For the first time since the 1980s, Grassley is polling under 50%, and a recent Loras poll has former Lieutenant Governor, Patty Judge, in a tight race and well within striking distance of Iowa’s five-term Senator. Let’s make 2016 the year that we don’t send Chuck Grassley back to Washington, D.C. Let’s elect a Democrat who will listen to her constituents and not Washington insiders or special interests.
Leave a comment for Sen, Grassley, and tell him you are tired of his irresponsible political posturing, www. haschuckgrassleydonehisjob.com !
We are now 121 days away from General Election, and Iowans are showing absolutely no signs of letting Grassley slide on his obstruction of the Supreme Court. The Iowa Democratic Party launched a new website tracking every second of Grassley’s Supreme Court obstruction. We encourage you to leave comments, and here’s what we’ve heard so far:
“I am so disgusted with your lack of doing your job. Hope that you lose your job.” Woodbury County
“ The time for partisan obstructionism has passed. The work of the nation needs to resume.” Scott County
“You work the people, not the Republican Party. I find what you are doing irresponsible. At one time I voted for you. That will never happen again” Polk County
We’re waiting to hear from YOU on why Sen. Grassley needs to hold a hearing for Merrick Garland!
