Essential Estrogen: Iowa Democrats plan live feed from Harkin's annual steak fry
Excerpted from this post at Essential Estrogen
The Iowa Democratic Party plans to offer a live internet video stream of U.S. Sen. Tom Harkin's annual steak fry fundraiser that is scheduled for this Sunday in Indianola. Keynote speaker at the event will be the junior U.S. Senator from Minnesota, Al Franken. "We are excited to launch a new way of including our supporters who can't be a part of an important event like the Harkin Steak Fry," said Michael Kiernan, chairman of the IDP. "There is a lot of interest in Sen. Franken, and I think Iowa Democrats are looking forward to a chance to get to know this new neighbor-state senator better." The event, which is set to take place this year at the Warren County Fairgrounds, typically draws Democrats from across the state. It will mark Franken's first cross into Iowa since he was elected to the U.S. Senate.
