Kerry, Dems Take Aim at GOP in Iowa
Kerry, Dems Take Aim at GOP in Iowa
October 9th, 2006 @ 12:33 am

Theres only 29 days to go before the November mid-term elections and John Kerry is on the road pulling out all the stops to campaign for candidates across the country. In Iowa on Sunday, nearly 250 Iowa Democrats paid $5, each, on Sunday afternoon to listen to three hours of speechmaking and fundraising for their state and national candidates. The event included appearances by Senators John Kerry and Tom Harkin.

Attendees came from as far as Woodbury, Adair, and Dubuque counties for the event in the ballroom at the Wild Rose Casino. The event was organized by the Democratic Central Committees of Palo Alto, Emmet, Kossuth, Pocahontas and Humboldt counties.

President George W. Bush took assaults from nearly every speaker on topics ranging from the War on Terrorism and healthcare, to education policies.


John Kerry, the keynote speaker at the event opened by saying that it was good to be back in a state where grassroots politics means something.

Kerry added that he was in Iowa for 116 days before the 2004 caucuses. The Republicans may have more money. And they may have fear on their side. But looking out at you right now, I can tell you: You are Karl Roves worst nightmare.

After remarks on behalf of Iowa candidates including Dr. Shelden Spencer, Secretary of Agriculture candidate Denise OBrien, Secretary of State candidate Mike Mauro, and Culver, Kerry commented that This is a big election. Here in Iowa and nationally.
