Iowans for Hillary Campaign October Update
Iowans for Hillary demonstrated the growing strength and depth of our
organization throughout the month of October. The month began in the front
seat of the “Middle Class Express” as Hillary rolled through eight cities
on a bus tour of Iowa where she announced her policy blueprint to rebuild
America’s middle class. Throughout the month, Iowans for Hillary held 549
“Hillary House Parties” and canvassed in all 99 of Iowa’s 99 counties.
Additionally, surrogates attended 214 events on behalf of Iowans for Hillary.
