Fourth district candidate Kim Weaver received the official endorsement of the Iowa Democratic Party this morning. The following is a press release received by Progressive Voice of Iowa from IDP Progressive Caucus Chair Jason Frerichs:
The Iowa Democratic Party Progressive Caucus is proud to announce that we are endorsing Kim Weaver to represent Iowa’s Fighting 4th District. Kim will be an excellent representative in congress. She is the most progressive candidate running and she shares our values.
Kim believes that public colleges and universities should be affordable for everyone. She believes that having an educated work force is the key to building a strong middle class and facing the technology challenges of the 21st century. She has presented a plan that allows students to earn credits while still in high school. She understands that student loan debt is a national crisis and favors policies that would help alleviate and in some cases allow students to graduate without any debt.
