Braley endorsed by Loebsack in 2014 Senate bid


Iowa 2nd District Congressman Dave Loebsack endorsed current 1st District Congressman Bruce Braley in the race for U.S. Senate in 2014.  Rep. Braley is considering a bid in 2014 to replace Sen. Tom Harkin, who will not run for re-election.  Braley and Loebsack have served in the U.S. House together since 2007.

On his Facebook page, Rep. Loebsack said, "I'm proud to endorse Bruce Braley for Senate. For the last 30 years, Tom Harkin has showed us how to be a Senator who works to create a world full of opportunities for people who want to make a better life for themselves and their families.  I have served with Bruce for six years now, and I can tell you from seeing his determination and work ethic up close there is no one at this time who is more ready to keep up the fight to strengthen middle class families and to make life better for Iowans. I am pleased to stand with Bruce. There is not a better choice in the Democratic Party, or in the state, to succeed Senator Harkin."


In a statement, Rep. Braley said, "I'm honored to have my friend Dave's endorsement and support. He's a leader and a strong voice for Iowa's working families. I know he'll be a strong ally not only in this campaign but long after as we continue working together to strengthen the middle class."
