We had a chance to speak with one of the Republican candidates recently while he was on his way to an appearance at the Northwest Iowa Republican Dinner on Thursday night. David Young is the former Chief of Staff to Senator Chuck Grassley. He gives us his background.
He tells us why he thinks he’s the right person for the job.
Young says he has courage and leadership to take on the issues and fight for Iowa.
We’ll be posting the entire interview with Young on our website in the future.
The other Republican candidates for Harkin’s Senate seat are radio personality Sam Clovis; State Senator Joni Ernst; attorney and nominee for Iowa’s 4th congressional district in 1988 and 1992 Paul Lunde; car salesman Scott Schaben; and former U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Iowa and nominee for Treasurer of Iowa in 2002 Matthew Whitaker.
The Democrat who has announced he’s running is Congressman Bruce Braley.
