Labor leaders hear from Iowa Dem. gubernatorial hopefuls
Labor leaders got an early peek at four of the Democrat hopefuls for [Iowa] governor Wednesday.For some odd reason, the article did not explain that Mike Blouin is head of the Iowa Department of Economic Development, Chet Culver is Iowa's Secretary of State, Ed Fallon Jr. is Iowa Dist. 66 State Rep, and Patty Judge is Iowa's Secretary of Agriculture.
What they heard were generalized statements that support union stances and foundations for the upcoming campaign.
Potential candidates Mike Blouin, Chet Culver, Ed Fallon and Patty Judge each spent 25 minutes answering questions in a forum at the Iowa Federation of Labor state convention.
Sen. Mike Gronstal and State Treasurer Mike Fitzgerald, who also are considering entering the race, were unable to attend.
