Radio Iowa: Boswell, Loebsack join Braley's "populist" group

Excerpted from this post at Radio Iowa

The news releases which went out earlier his week indicated there were
21 members in the new "Populist Caucus" Congressman Bruce Braley
(D-Waterloo) has formed. Today, Braley's two Iowa colleagues --
Congressmen Leonard Boswell & Dave Loebsack, both Democrats -- joined
the "Populist" group, too. ... "The middle class is the economic engine
of America, but too often in Washington, the needs of the middle class
are ignored." Rep. Bruce Braley (D-Iowa), Chair of the Populist
Caucus, said. "During these tough times, we need a renewed focus on
strengthening the middle class and improving the lives of working
families."
