J.D. Scholten has received the endorsement of Democracy for America. DFA has 14,944 members in Iowa’s Fourth Congressional District, 30,276 in the state of Iowa, and more than one million members nationwide. It is somewhat surprising that half of DFA’s Iowa membership is in the conservative fourth district. Maybe Iowa’s fourth has more potential for a progressive candidate than conventional wisdom assumes.
J.D. carries forward Howard Dean’s “people-powered campaign” theme.
“Our campaign is proud to earn Democracy for America’s endorsement, a critical step forward in our people-powered campaign to deliver real, positive change for Iowa’s 4th district. By coming together, as Iowans and Americans first, we can build a government and an economy that works for all people — not just those at the top.” — J.D. Scholten
Here we go, folks. This could be interesting.
