MASON CITY – Iowa Congressman Bruce Braley stopped in Mason City to light a fire under his campaign supporters.

“These yard signs are doing no good over here,” Braley playfully chided a clapping room full of supporters Tuesday afternoon as he thanked them for their support in a grueling, tight election against Republican Joni Ernst.  The campaign signs, leaning against a wall, were later snapped up by supporters as they left.

About 3 dozen Braley supporters waited for the Democratic candidate for U.S. Senate, who was running a little behind after being blocked by a train.  He was introduced once he arrived at the Democratic Party office in downtown Mason City by Cerro Gordo County Democratic Party Chairman John Stone.

Braley thanked Stone for his leadership, and then remarked about how much North Iowa means to this election.

“Do I think North Central Iowa is important you better believe it,” Braley said.  “This is the fifth time I have been here in Cerro Gordo County since August 5th.”

He said if Ernst is elected, it would put Iowa on a “radical Tea Party agenda that’s going to take us back into the past.”

Braley reiterated that he favors a minimum wage hike to $10.10 an hour and accused Ernst of wanting to privatize social security.

        Hard to tell which Anonymous you are. I really wish Matt would make everyone use their own name even if it is fake. What Anonymous tells me is that you are a bottom feeder who is to damn cheap to buy a subscription but still want to troll around making comments. You are part of the problem troll and none of the solution.

            @Anonymous-Yes, you are a lot of laughs. I comment under the same name every time and always have. No one else uses it as it is registered and my subscription is paid for. Nothing like a leach like you.

    He just spoke another pack of lies about his opponent. Everyone that has commented so far agree’s with his socialism. He is more left than Harkin and that is scary.

    Remember when he was complaining during the shut down that there was no towel service in the house gym during the shut down? That was a real hardship to him, the rest of us do our own laundry.
