Democrat Dave Muhlbauer has announced the launch of his campaign for U.S. Senate against GOP Sen. Chuck Grassley. Muhlbauer is a fifth-generation family farmer, former Vice Chairman of the Crawford County Board of Supervisors and member of the Iowa Association of Counties, generational Democrat and lifelong Iowan.
Muhlbauer said “Iowa has been my home all my life. This is where I live, where I grew up, where I’m raising my family. Having the grassroots connection to Iowa and its soil is who I am. It’s why I’m running for Senate. We have the possibility to make Iowa a leader, through farming and education, infrastructure and health care.”
Muhlbauer says he is running against GOP Sen. Chuck Grassley, as a voice for the working families, farmers, and rural communities in Iowa, who have long been left behind by the politicians and policies in Washington, D.C. As a farmer raising corn, beans, alfalfa, hogs and cattle, Muhlbauer has seen first-hand the devastation of rural communities at the hands of policies that cater to corporate interests and profits instead of working people.
Muhlbauer will be making stops across the state, including Mason City, Cedar Falls and Waterloo, Cedar Rapids and Iowa City, Dubuque and Davenport, Des Moines, and Sioux City.
