Click here to check out the website:Bruce is proud of his Iowa roots and the values of hard work and responsibility that his parents instilled in him at an early age -- it's the values Bruce learned growing up in a middle class Iowa family that he takes with him every day to fight for Iowa in Congress. And it’s why he’s running to be the next U.S. Senator of our state.
Since announcing his campaign for U.S. Senate, Bruce has spent countless hours traveling around Iowa, listening to the concerns and ideas of families in Atlantic, business owners in Des Moines, and students in Iowa City.
And I’m proud to announce that as of this week, our campaign has now visited every single county in Iowa -- all 99 of them.
So to celebrate this milestone, we’ve put together a list of 99 reasons why Bruce is committed to fighting for middle class Iowa families. Click here to check out the website.
Growing up as a kid in Brooklyn, Iowa, Bruce got his first job as a paperboy when he was in the second grade, and he hasn’t stopped working since. Jobs in road construction and truck driving helped him pay his way through college at Iowa State and law school at the University of Iowa. As an attorney, Bruce represented Iowans taking on special interests and big corporations. And he and his wife Carolyn live in and raised their three children in Waterloo.
That’s why Bruce has fought so hard in Congress to move the middle class forward. He’s helped pass tax cuts that enabled small businesses to hire more than 100,000 Iowa workers. It’s why he supports giving minimum wage workers a raise. And it’s why he’ll always stand up to protect Medicare and Social Security for our seniors.

Bruce is committed to helping make Iowa a better place for middle class families. Because it’s where he comes from and who he is.
