August 18th is a very important date in American history, and I hope you’ll join me in celebrating it. It was 96 years ago today that the 19th Amendment to the US Constitution was ratified and women across the country were granted the right to vote.
That’s right, less than 100 years ago, voting was something that only men were allowed to do.
Fast-forward to today, we have the first woman nominated by a major political party for President of the United States, a highly-qualified woman as the Democratic nominee to the United States Senate, and here in the 4th District, as well as in the 1st, women are also on the ballot to join the United States House of Representatives. Additionally, we Democrats have nominated seven women to the Iowa Senate and 36 to the Iowa House.
Thank you so much for being a supporter of my campaign. I’m very excited about the possibilities that lie ahead if we’re successful in retiring Steve King and if I’m lucky enough to be given the privilege of replacing him. Should we prevail, I promise to be one of those representatives who is responsive to your concerns and focused on solutions that will help you and your family.
