Iowa needs better representation and smarter leadership in DC. Joni Ernst, extreme Trump loyalist, has done nothing for Iowa in her first term. Admiral Franken is holding a virtual Coronavirus Town Hall tomorrow. See details below.
I’m Mike Franken — a retired three-star Admiral and a Democratic candidate for U.S. Senate in Iowa.
Thursday at 4 p.m. local time, I am hosting a Coronavirus Town Hall on Facebook Live to answer questions about the COVID-19 pandemic. This is my second virtual town hall; Saturday’s event drew over 160 listeners from all across the state.
It is essential for our leaders to help educate the public. Almost all of us understand the dire consequences of COVID-19, but less clear is what policy items are necessary to do the two most important things in this crisis: flatten the curve and protect workers. Last week, a wrote a diary about why Mitch McConnell’s Corporate Relief Bill is not sufficient to do either. Check it out here.
This election is continuing; the Iowa’s secretary of state just extended the early vote period to forty days. And, as the COVID-19 pandemic continues and people’s livelihoods are threatened, this election has become even more important.
Please join me at 4 p.m. CT for my Coronavirus Town Hall. I’ll answer your questions, and I’ll talk about what is necessary to keep us safe and keep workers above water. See you then.
