The forum takes place two months before the critical Iowa caucus, on Saturday, December 7 at 2 pm and will feature candidates Joe Biden, Steve Bullock, Pete Buttigieg, Kamala Harris, Amy Klobuchar and Bernie Sanders. All the Presidential candidates who agreed to sign the union’s three-point pledge and participated in an on-camera interview were invited to attend the forum.
The event will be held at Veteran’s Auditorium, Cedar Rapids, and will be hosted by James Hoffa, general president of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters. The candidates will appear onstage individually, answering questions from union members and the moderators. The event will be live-streamed at theguardian.com. Moderators are Art Cullen, Pulitzer prize-winning editor of the Storm Lake Times who is an opinion contributor to the Guardian, and Leslie Marshall of the Leslie Marshall Show.
