A Democratic Conference for Dave Loebsack, our 2nd District Congressman, was held at approximately 6:00 p.m. on Saturday, February 11, 2012. The conference was held at the Iowa Memorial Union on the University of Iowa campus, and sponsored by the University Of Iowa Young Democrats.
The general purpose of the conference was to update and inform those present, on the status of both the new layout of the 2nd District and the new challenge faced by Dave in the upcoming November 2012 election.
In addition to Dave, the featured speaker was Rep. Steve Israel, the Chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. Rep. Israel discussed the strategic importance of Congressman Loebsack's race on both a local and national level.
A Power Point presentation highlighted the focus of the campaign effort over the next several months, leading to Dave's re-election. It was clearly outlined just how important the re-election of Dave Loebsack will impact both the 2nd District and also the State of Iowa and the nation.
The event was well received by all of those in attendance, including Peter Morrison, Washington County Chairperson and Adhali Larios, Affirmative Action, chair of Washington, Iowa.
We had the opportunity to discuss important work in Washington County in the Spring, Summer and Fall of this year, and the cooperative participation of Iowa university students during the campaign this summer and fall.
