February Iowa Caucus Highlights
We kicked off caucus season with a legislative reception in Des Moines, attended by dozens of Iowa state lawmakers and state directors for several presidential candidates. Former Iowa Secretary of Agriculture and Lt. Governor Patty Judge, Former Governor and US Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack, and Columnist Bob Leonard spoke on the importance of Rural America to the rest of the country, what our political leaders have to do to meet their needs, and what it’ll take to bring them back into the fold.
From Bob Leonard’s recent column in the New York Times, “They should spend a lot of time talking to farmers and be bold in their proposals.”
