DES MOINES –AFSCME Iowa Council 61 is proud to announce its endorsement of Rob Hogg for US Senate. Rob Hogg earned the endorsement of AFSCME because he has a record of being a leader in the fight for mental health services in Iowa, he is an advocate for adequate staffing of public services that Iowans count on, and he has a vision of a Congress that once again works for the American people.
“AFSCME members are excited to back Rob Hogg for US Senate because he is a champion for working families. We have members in all ninety-nine counties. Our members will be a key part of Senator Hogg’s winning coalition in June and November,” said AFSCME Iowa Council 61 President Danny Homan.
State Senator Rob Hogg, AFSCME’s recommended candidate for US Senate, said “I am honored by this endorsement from the members of AFSCME who work so hard to provide badly needed services to Iowans. We share a vision of a full-employment economy that works for all Americans and meets the health, safety, and educational needs of our people.”
President Homan added that an AFSCME endorsement makes a real difference at the grassroots level: “The most important aspect of our endorsement is boots on the ground. We work hard to get the message of our endorsement out to our members and our members have a long tradition of knocking doors, making phone calls, and writing letters to the editor on behalf of our recommended candidates. Our members will be out in force in the streets making a difference for Rob Hogg.”
