O'Malley announces Iowa Endorsements


From Iowa Starting Line:


Update 9/8: The O’Malley campaign released a list of 17 Iowa endorsements the day after Labor Day, framing it as part of their entrance into a new phase of campaigning in the Iowa Caucus. A handful of these names were already known from a while ago (well, to me anyway), but there’s several important new ones. Senator Rich Taylor joins Representative Dan Kelley as his first two endorsers from the Iowa Legislature. Nathan Blake, an Assistant A.G., school board member and well-known Des Moines Democrat is now on board. So is Bev Strayhall, one of Eastern Iowa’s most important activists.

“As the campaign heads into the Fall season and Iowans begin to pay more attention to the presidential race following Labor Day, O’Malley continues to gain momentum on the ground,” the campaign said in a press release. “With overflow crowds on college campuses, increasing endorsements from community leaders who know how to organize caucuses, and a commitment to one-on-one conversations with Iowans around the state – O’Malley is building a caucus campaign from the grassroots up.”
