Loebsack Throws Support to Braley for Senate Seat
DAVENPORT, Iowa (AP) — Representative Dave Loebsack is endorsing his Iowa congressional colleague and fellow Democrat, Congressman Bruce Braley, for U.S. Senate in 2014.
Braley announced on February 7th his plans to seek the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by Democrat Tom Harkin.
Loebsack says after serving with Braley in Congress for six years, he’s convinced Braley is the best choice to succeed Harkin and will “fight to strengthen middle class families and to make life better for Iowans.”
The 54-year-old Braley is a four-term House member from Waterloo.
Iowa Republican U.S. Representatives Steve King and Tom Latham also have been weighing campaigns, but neither has taken formal steps to establish a campaign fundraising committee.
