OCTOBER 28TH, 2008 | Harkin for Senate
The Iowa City Press-Citizen has endorsed Tom Harkin for a fifth term in the US Senate.
The paper cited Harkin’s extensive work for all Iowans in their endorsement:
Harkin has our endorsement -as he did in 1984, 1990 and 1996 – because he has proven to be an effective lawmaker who looks out for Iowa’s best interests even as he plays a powerful role on the national stage.
They also discussed his important work in helping Iowa’s school and on the landmark Americans With Disabilities Act:
He focused on how he has worked hard to help Iowa schools receive federal funding for modernization, and on how he has teamed with Republicans to extend student loans and Pell Grant coverage that will help a lot more citizens go to college.
As the main author of the Americans with Disabilities Act, he talked about the groundbreaking work being done to help the United States undergo a paradigm shift into a “wellness society.”
