We heard speeches from various Democratic candidates such as Francis Thicke, Patty Judge, Governor Culver, and Matt Campbell (who is running against Steven King). We hope they will get elected as they were quite impressive.
In addition to hearing outstanding speakers from the Iowa Congressional Delegation, State officials also were present and gave uplifting speeches about Iowa's economy. Of course, Senator Tom Harkin is always a joy to hear. The keynote address was given by the Senior Senator from Minnesota. The hardest part of our work was giving final approval to Iowa's state platform.
