U.S. Democratic Senatorial candidate Patty Judge held several campaign stops in Eastern Iowa on Friday.
Judge began her morning in Decorah before heading to Manchester to discuss her campaign over lunch provided at The Bread Basket. The Iowa native touched upon current political issues, such as healthcare reform, student loan debt and raising the minimum wage to $15 an hour.
Judge will continue her tour of Iowa before taking a quick trip to the Democratic National Convention.
The former Iowa Lieutenant Governor has been endorsed by several democratic figures such as the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, the League of Conservation Voters and President Barack Obama. Judge is currently running against Republican Chuck Grassley, who has held a chair in the Senate since 1987.
