The Iowa Democratic Party is dedicated to promoting Democratic principles across the state of Iowa and electing qualified and dedicated candidates at all levels of government.
Iowa Democrats have a proud tradition of fighting for an economy built from the middle out, equal rights and the idea that our strength draws from the connections we share. I’m honored and excited to help lead the next chapter in that effort alongside our great Democratic elected officials, partners and supporters across the state.
2015-2016 brings a real opportunity to build on Democrats’ gains in Des Moines and Washington, D.C. not just to say we won an election, but to expand educational and job opportunities for all Iowans.
