News Briefs

  • Candidate Jack Hatch blasted Governor Branstad Thursday, saying "Long before Terry Branstad was taking the ice bucket challenge for charity, he was vetoing basic help for Iowans who live with disabilities. Put your money where your mouth is, Governor."
  • Jim Mowrer, a candidate for Congress who is running against Steve King, said that if he wins the election "I will fight any attempts to privatize Social Security and Medicare. We can't break the promise of Social Security by cutting benefits our families have earned."
  • Texas governor Rick Perry: It's a 'very real possibility' ISIS has already crossed southern U.S. border.
  • "James Foley went to the darkest of places to shine the light of truth. Nothing could stop him from sharing with the world the reality of what was happening on the front lines in Iraq and Afghanistan, or the struggle against a brutal dictator in Libya, and he was just as determined to do the same from Syria. He was brave and bold, and no masked coward can ever steal the legacy of this courageous American who lived out the meaning of the word journalism." - John Kerry, U.S. Secretary of State on James Foley, recently murdered by ISIS madmen. "There is evil in this world, and we all have come face to face with it once again. Ugly, savage, inexplicable, nihilistic, and valueless evil. ISIL is the face of that evil."
  • Adam Gregg for Iowa Attorney General: “The attorney general is Iowa’s lawyer, and if you’re Iowa’s lawyer, you should meet with your clients every once in a while, the people of Iowa... That’s something Tom Miller has lost over his 32 years in office, the desire to work hard and get out and meet with people.”
