Farmers Union Members by Bus

STORM LAKE, Iowa – “When family farms prosper, everyone prospers.” Scribed on the back of their shirts, that was the message that Wisconsin Farmers Union (WFU) members carried to the inaugural Heartland Forum in Iowa on March 30.

Julian Castro and Amy Klobuchar interviews at Heartland Forum Storm Lake Iowa, 3/30/2019

April 1, 2019

During the Heartland Forum in Storm Lake Iowa several of the presidential candidates took part in informal press gaggles during the event.  These are interesting events, with a large number of TV and Radio reporters fighting for room near the interviewee. As is obvious from the video, I did not always win that battle, but bear with that. There are two interviews, one with Julian Castro and one with Amy Klobuchar.
