Democrat John Norris launches bid for Iowa governor

Source: Omaha World Herald

By Mike Brownlee

John Norris, a Montgomery County native who worked in the administrations of Iowa Gov. Tom Vilsack and President Barack Obama, has entered the Democratic gubernatorial primary.

“I just got fed up with this governor and the Republican Legislature doing everything for special interests and not the people of Iowa,” Norris said of his decision to run.

Norris, 58, listed health care, water quality and education among the key issues facing the state. He called the 2017 Iowa legislative session “destructive to our future.”

“We don’t address serious concerns about access to health care in Iowa. We’re not answering the call for improvements to water in the state,” he said. “Those are examples of where I think they’ve taken the side of special interests.”

2. I sure as hell hope whoever gets the nod he or she puts up a fight

I'll support Norris if he gets the nod. Or any other Democrat who gets the nod.

Whoever it is they need to fight hard against Reynolds and the Jeeeeezus (no relation to Jesus Chrsit) fan club members out in Western Iowa.

5. Well not fighting those fucksticks is rolling over and dying for them.

Not doing that.

I'm here in eastern Iowa, which still has some spots of blue in it.

4. He's running statewide, not just in Western Iowa

and Reynolds will barely be an incumbent.
