So when I came back from lunch, I discovered that both Iowa Progress and Political Forecast have picked up on Mark Warner's new Mapchangers contest, and both have endorsed candidates. Let me tell you who I voted for and why.
I have the utmost respect for several candidates across the state, but the legislative candidate I've devoted the most time and effort to is Elesha Gayman. Elesha is bright, energetic, talented and motivated, and most importantly, she's a true progressive: exactly what we need in the statehouse. I just spent the weekend over in Davenport where I attended a debate between Elesha and her opponent, a fundraising event, and knocked doors with her. I'm more convinced than ever that she can and should win, perhaps more than any other candidate I've met.
