The Republicans have mounted a sneak attack—trying to send Iowa down the same terrible road as Wisconsin and Ohio.
Progressive Kick is partnering with our Iowa friends Working Families Win to fight back. Iowa’s future is hanging in the balance and YOU can tip the scales! 100% of funds raised by Progressive Kick Iowa Fund will be used in Iowa.
Democrats were clinging to a 26-24 majority in the State Senate, but the Governor appointed a Democratic senator to a statewide board, just so he could call a special election that could allow Republicans to take control of the entire Iowa state government. This snap special election will be held next week on November 8. The Republican governor and State House want to kill HAWK-I, Iowa’s health insurance program for low- and middle-class children, universal pre-school collective bargaining rights for hard working teachers, nurses, & firefighters and discriminate by taking away the rights of gay Iowans to get married.
$50 from you gets a matching $50 from our major contributors. All of our administrative costs are covered already – so that $100 translates directly into 10 extra completed and submitted absentee ballots. Together we can do this but time is running short. Please give generously now and tell your friends and family. The Democrat Liz Mathis is a passionate advocate for children. The Republican campaigns against unions on her web site. In a district of 50,000 voters, there are 193 more Republicans than Democrats so your $50 donation could well prove to be the difference in winning the election!
