Essestial Estrogen: Polly Bukta Endorses Biden for President
Excerpted from this post at Essestial Estrogen
Iowa House Speaker Pro Tempore Polly Bukta, D-Clinton, has become the
ninth member of the Iowa legislature to endorse Delaware Sen. Joe
Biden. With the addition of Bukta, the campaign's endorsement list
includes five members of the Iowa House Leadership. Biden was one of
four candidates to attend Bukta's annual corn boil held in August.
Biden was the final speaker of the day and many in the stands at
Riverfront Stadium in Clinton had moved to the grounds, most
scampering after New York Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, Connecticut
Sen. Chris Dodd and former North Carolina Sen. John Edwards on a quest
for pictures and autographs. On that day, Biden spoke forcefully about
his plan for Iraq and his reasoning for voting to continue funding.
