WHY I AM RUNNING

I learned from an early age the importance of our shared values as Iowans: compassion, conviction, community, and citizenship. As Iowans, we expect to be treated equally, dealt with honestly, and given a fair shot at success. Instead, Washington politicians and special interests are rewriting the rules to put billionaires and corporations ahead of hardworking women and men. My experiences working for Iowans and Americans have made one thing clear: Iowans are working harder but still not getting ahead. I’m running because it’s time to rebuild a secure middle class, lead with our values, and own our future.
