Washington, D.C. – Earlier this week, Iowa’s Democrat nominee for U.S. Senate spoke at a campaign event and:
- Demanded that an Iowa mayor take away someone’s free speech.
- Bragged about serving in the military only for people who hold the same beliefs.
- Refused to stop in a town where people disagree with him.
Statement from NRSC Chairman Rick Scott: “As a veteran, I am disgusted that Mike Franken claimed he served in the military only for people who held the same beliefs as him. He is unwilling to stop in towns and meet with people who disagree with him and that clearly makes Franken unfit for office. I applaud Senator Grassley for keeping his commitment to meet with voters, whoever they vote for, every year through his annual 99 county meetings and other events he hosts in Iowa. Iowa families deserve a Senator who is willing to serve them, even when they may have different views on issues.”
