Press Release

Location: Carroll, IA

After visiting eight Iowa counties during the Iowa Democratic Party's unprecedented 24-hour tour of all 99 counties, Bruce Braley continued to travel the state today and visited Webster City, Fort Dodge, Sioux City and Carroll to meet with local activists and grassroots organizers and share his plans to be a Senator who fights for all of Iowa's hardworking families, not just the wealthiest few. Bruce's momentum in the race is growing because of his focus on policies that work for all Iowans, and campaign manager Sarah Benzing released a memo today illustrating how the early vote statistics show unquestionable strength for Bruce.

In stark contrast to Bruce's focus on policies that put Iowa families first, Sen. Joni Ernst's plans--including privatizing Social Security, protecting corporations that ship jobs overseas from paying their fair share in taxes, abolishing federal student loans, and opposing a minimum wage increase that would give 300,000 Iowans a raise--would have devastating consequences for Iowa's families.

"There is a lot wrong with Congress today -- too much gridlock, too little compromise. When it does act, Congress too often looks out for the interests of the wealthy and big corporations, instead of the middle class. As a Senator, my priority will be building an economy that works for all of Iowa's families, not just for the wealthy few. Together, we are going to make sure Iowans know what's at stake in this election, and how important it is to get out and vote early," said Braley.

Braley highlighted the importance of voting early in this year's crucial midterm election. Voting early is the simplest and easiest way to cast a ballot. Iowans can vote early in person from now until November 3. For more information about early voting locations, visit vote.brucebraley.com.
