Liberal Groups Unite to Save IA Senate Seat
Liberal forces are uniting in Iowa to save a suddenly vulnerable U.S. senate seat and thereby preserve Democratic control of Congress’s upper body. Iowa ADA is joining up with two other local progressive organizations to boost the prospects of embattled Democratic senate hopeful Bruce Braley, as well as help worker-friendly candidates up and down the ballot. None too soon, since ADA’s politically savvy Iowa organizer says the state Democratic Party is targeting the wrong voters, in the wrong way, and encouraging the wrong kind of early voting. Meanwhile, ADA’s long-term influence is evidenced in several legislative races.
