For the past several months, progressives throughout Iowa’s Third Congressional District have contacted me and have asked me to consider running for The U.S. House of Representatives. The many offers of support have been humbling. It is clear that a great many people believe that the way to change the clutter in Washington D.C. is to change the way we select our candidates. We can no longer rely on the same failed manner or the same failed pool that we have in the recent past to recruit candidates.
With this in mind, I will be forming a committee to explore a run for Congress. Third District voters deserve to have their voices heard. Over the course of the next few months, I will be traveling to all 16 counties in our district listening to everyday people, talking with activists, and engaging with community leaders to gather their views on the condition and the direction of the district and our country.
Iowa’s strength has always been found in the values of its people. I look forward to the discussions ahead and hearing ideas of how we can begin the process of once again bringing those values to our government.
