SEPTEMBER 5TH, 2008 | Harkin for Senate
Last night Senator Harkin released the following statement in response to Senator John McCain’s speech at the Republican National Convention.
“Tonight’s speech from Senator McCain was simply more of the same from the Republican Party – the same false attacks and same policies that will hurt Iowa’s working families. Senator McCain has attempted to portray himself as a maverick who will lead our country in a new direction, but how can he do this when he has consistently voted with George Bush? Senator McCain even joined with the President in opposing the recent farm bill which passed with great bipartisan support.
“Americans want real change – better jobs at home, affordable health care and energy independence – and we need Senator Barack Obama as our next President.”
