From our inbox yesterday.
I’m Dave Muhlbauer. I’m a farmer in Iowa who raises hogs and cattle, corn, beans, and alfalfa, and I’m running for U.S. Senate. Let me tell you why:
Republican Senator Chuck Grassley has been in office for over 40 years. And throughout Grassley’s four decades in office, Iowans have endured extreme economic hardship and witnessed generational disinvestment in our communities.
You don’t have to look hard for proof: Health care is inaccessible and expensive, climate change-related disasters, like last year’s derecho, have become more frequent, and the minimum wage is wholly insufficient for a working family.
Through these periods of crisis and stagnation, Iowans have been holding tough and waiting for politicians to deliver the support we’ve desperately needed. Grassley has all but ensured that support never arrived.
I’m done waiting.
Please take a few minutes to watch my announcement video, and if you like what you hear, stick around and help me flip this battleground Senate seat.
