Iowa to hold primary election with candidates from both parties vying for lines on ballot

Iowa to hold primary election with candidates from both parties vying for lines on ballot

Tomorrow is a big day for candidates hoping to make the ballot for some top offices in Iowa.

The democrats have a couple primaries. One is for governor and another for Congress. Republicans have a primary on the state level

For governor, the candidates are: Cathy Glasson, Fred Hubbell, Andy McGuire, John Norris and Ross Wilburn.

"We need to elect labor friendly people, worker friendly people, people that believe in workers having rights to talk to their employers," said Scott Punteney who is part of the Pottawatomie County Democrat party.

Glasson centered her campaign around creating universal healthcare and taising the minimum wage.

A few weeks ago, we spoke with democrat Fred Hubbell when he made a stop in council bluffs.

"Our governor today has been badly managing the fiscal resources of our state," said Hubbell.

McGuire says she's fighting for all Iowans, pushing for comprehensive, affordable healthcare.

Just last week, democrat John Norris was in Council Bluffs.

"Iowa's hallmark is our public education system," said Norris, "and we're really under-funding it and it's causing us to lose sight of our future."

Wilburn too is education focused, supporting tuition-free college education for Iowans.

Whoever wins Tuesday's primary will run against republican governor Kim Reynolds in November.

U.S. House District 3 is another race to look at.

Democrat Cindy Axne hopes to grow the economy and help families.

Pete D'Alessandro's issues include medicare for all and a woman's right to choose.

Eddie Mauro says he's committed to improving the performance of government and empower people.

Whoever wins Tuesday's primary will run against republican congressman David Young.

Finally, in the Iowa House District 15, the republicans have a primary. Sarah Abdouch, LeAnn Hughesa are the candidates.

While party leaders say candidate Mark Hunter has dropped out.

"Ee just had a new budget passed, and I think on the republican side we definitely want to hold those seats so we can continue to advance our conservative values," said Jan Tatum who is part of the Pottawatomie County Republican party.

Incumbent democrat Charlie McConkey is uncontested.
