Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti to visit Des Moines on Saturday

"Our next event will be with Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti this Saturday at 11:00 AM at Cooney’s in Beaverdale. Just like our event with Governor Bullock, this event will be free and open to all Democrats. Because this is Iowa, CSPAN has requested to attend this event as well. I’ve talked with some of the national press about the visit and they’re saying Mayor Garcetti is one of those people to watch.

He made headlines for raising the minimum wage in Los Angeles and taking on bold transportation and infrastructure plans. He is the city’s youngest and first elected Jewish mayor. He is also the second Mexican American mayor there in more than a century. A Lieutenant in the U.S. Navy reserve, Mayor Garcetti has helped secure housing for more than 8,000 veterans and is committed to veteran employment. One of our own Polk County veterans, Ben Cobley, has agreed to introduce the Mayor. We can’t wait to see you there."

Montana Governor Steve Bullock visits Des Moines

From the Polk County Democrats Weekly Update...

"The first words that Montana Governor Steve Bullock said when he walked through the door last Friday night was, “Wow. Looks like Polk County has done this before.” A few weeks ago, several people had jokingly asked if we were sure that we should be doing an event in Johnston because there aren’t any Democrats there. There certainly were on Friday. Well more than 100 Polk County Democrats showed up to greet him at Doc’s Lounge. Our House District 39 candidate Karin Derry did a great job introducing the Governor. We even had a special appearance from Attorney General Tom Miller. If you missed the event, it will be broadcasting on CSPAN this week."

Polk County Iowa Democratic Caucus results will make you happy!

It’s official. The 2018 Caucus was the biggest midterm Caucus in the history of our Polk County Democratic Party. Since it all happened during a snowstorm, it’s all the more impressive.

Polk County Dems are lead by the energetic Sean Bagniewski and publishes a weekly update that includes all Dem meetings, candidate meet-n-greets, and the agenda of the next Central Committtee meeting.

Most importantly, the Dems are organized into areas or neighborhoods which allows more participation and greater ownership of the party, such as Beaverdale Dems, Southside Dems, Eastside Dems, etc.

We expect great things in November.

Send your GI Joe dolls and toy soldiers to the Trump.

Maybe that will satisfy his need for a military parade.

Polk County Iowa Midterm Caucuses are biggest ever!

from Sean Bagniewski, Polk County Democratic Party Chair...

Well, it was a night for the history books. Despite a terrible snowstorm, it looks like it was the biggest midterm Polk County Caucuses in our history!

Thank you to the thousands of Democrats who came together to help organize our Party for the County Convention and for the general election in November. This will be one of the most, if not the most, important elections in our Democratic history as we fight to take back the General Assembly and the Governor’s Office. Last night was the first step in that long battle ahead.

Thank you to the hundreds of people who volunteered to lead the 177 precincts across Polk County. From Site Leaders to Precinct Leaders to those working the check-in tables, everyone went over and above to make sure everything went smoothly. Thank you to our sisters and brothers in labor who plowed the streets so that we could all come together...

Nan Hayworth (R-Crazytown) on Stephanie Ruhl now

Talking conspiracies within FBI. She's a motor mouth and Ruhl lets her blather too long, IMHO, before the other two guests are allowed brief responses.

Did Rachel set a record tonight? 24 minute opening.

She's a good interviewer but a bad monologist. My forensic instructor could give her pointers. :
First guest at 28 minutes.

AM Joy needs to leave the preachers (Burns yesterday, non-racist Rev Forbes today) at the church

If I wanted to be preached about "God said all people are created equal" I'd go to a church. We will never be treated equal if it is left to the church. We need laws and enforcement, not prayers.

OMG! SNL has Joe and Mika down perfectly.
