As governor, Nate Boulton will fight for Iowans

I am supporting Nate Boulton for Iowa governor because a year ago I saw him out front with Iowa Democrats who never gave up on fighting for Iowa families like mine.

I am supporting Boulton because I saw him fight for teachers and education funding in the senate, and I saw him march with us outside the building where the Iowa Senate meets.

I am supporting Boulton because I saw him fight for workers’ fundamental rights to speak for themselves.

I am supporting Boulton because he has a clear plan of how he can start on day one using the powers of the governor to help Iowa — ending privatized Medicaid and reopening mental health hospitals.

I am supporting Boulton because I see the statewide effort to build support across the state, from my current hometown of Iowa City, to other places I’ve lived like Waterloo, Mason City, and where I grew up in rural Clinton County. He can win the whole state in November.

But most of all, I’m supporting Boulton because I believe he is the best person to fight for my family.
