SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

Rep. Dave Loebsack, D-Iowa, announced via Facebook Feb. 16 his endorsement of fellow Rep. Bruce Braley, D-Iowa for the U.S. Senate.

“There is not a better choice in the Democratic Party, or in the state, to succeed Sen. Harkin,” Loebsack said in the post. “I have served with Bruce for six years now, and I can tell you from seeing his determination and work ethic up close, there is no one at this time who is more ready to keep up the fight to strengthen middle class families and to make life better for Iowan.”

Braley, who announced his intentions to run for the seat on Feb. 7, said he was honored by Loebsack’s endorsement. They have served together since 2007.

“I’m honored to have my friend Dave’s endorsement and support,” he said. “I know he’ll be a strong ally not only in this campaign but long after as we continue working together to strengthen the middle class.”
