Braley endorses Conlin for US Senate

WATERLOO (KWWL) - Congressman Bruce Braley endorsed Des Moines trial lawyer Roxanne Conlin in Waterloo Monday.

Conlin is running against five-term senator Charles Grassley.

Conlin met with city, county, and labor leaders Wednesday afternoon.  She says Grassley listens too much to special interests.

"Iowans want someone who only has their interests at heart. I'm not taking PAC money, I'm not taking money from federal lobbyists, I'm going to be beholden only to the people of Iowa," Conlin says.

It has been 27 years since Conlin last ran for public office, losing in the governor's race to Terry Branstad.

Conlin is among three democrats running to challenge Grassley next year. The others are former state legislators Tom Fiegen of Clarence and Bob Krause of Fairfield.
