Hawkeye Review: Iowa: This is our call to action!
Excerpted from this post at Hawkeye Review
You may assume that each of our state's politicians is firm in their support of certain "key" issues but we need to remember one universal truth in the political realm...survival. Polls this weekend show our Governor is losing support and approval, fast. I mean roller coaster plunge fast. Fewer than 25% of Iowans support the governor's bonding plan and that's after a 25 city promotional tour. ... I'm also informed by several sources that legislators were inundated by emails this past Friday and the pace didn't slow down over the weekend. ... You may also find yourself somewhat incredulous when you learn that many Democrat lawmakers failed to appear at their own legislative forums this past weekend...attempting to hide from "the real Iowa" at all costs. This in itself should be a key motivator to cause you to lobby in the next 48 hours.
