Presidential Race

This is a Purple “battleground” state, one of six critical states that voted for Obama in 2012, but then voted for Trump in 2016. It is absolutely critical to our survival that we win back this state for Biden in 2020.

Trump won this state in 2016 with 9.4% more votes than Hillary Clinton, or roughly 147,000 votes out of more than 1.5 million votes cast in Iowa. Nearly 175,000 young people, aged 18-25, did not vote in that election.

If you live in Iowa, your vote is critical to our survival. Voting for a third party or not voting at all is the same is giving your vote to Trump in this state.

Senate Race

This election is not just about Donald Trump. So long as Mitch McConnell retains control of the Senate, a President Biden will be able to achieve very little in office. We need to end McConnell’s tyranny of the Senate on November 3rd.

This is a Republican-held Senate seat and Democrats were not expecting to be able to take it on November 3rd. However, Democrat Theresa Greenfield is challenging Republican incumbent Joni Ernst for this seat, and is moving up rapidly in the opinion polls. You can use your vote to say no to Ernst, no to Trump and no to Mitch McConnell.

A vote for Theresa Greenfield is a vote for survival!

House Races

 The best we can hope for in 2020 at the Presidential and Senate levels is to get rid of Donald Trump and Mitch McConnell so that we will at least survive the next four years. But in the medium term, we need to elect politicians who support the Green New Deal, Medicare for All, the Nuclear Ban Treaty and other real, sustainable solutions to the global threats facing us all.

Luckily, we already have over 100 such politicians in the House of Representatives. We need to make sure they get re-elected, and we need to elect more of them!

If you live in one of these US Congressional Districts, you have a progressive member of Congress to support!

District 2 – Dave Loebsack
