U.S. Senate Candidate Michael Franken Visits Manchester

A U.S. Senate candidate made a visit to Manchester this week.

Michael Franken is running in the Democratic primary next June. He is a Sioux County native who spent almost forty years attached to the Navy, retiring as a three-star Admiral. He announced his run for the Senate in August.

Franken is running for the seat currently held by Republican U.S. Senator Joni Ernst. He told KMCH there are several reasons why he feels he would be best for the position.

As Franken is traveling the state, he says he is hearing a lot of people wanting answers on trade policy. He says if elected, he’d get to right to work on day one.

The Delaware County Democrats had a chance to meet Franken at their meeting Monday night. You can find out more about Franken and his campaign for the Senate at frankenforiowa.org.
