More on Education and Opportunity

As I travel across the Third District meeting with Iowans, holding town halls, and listening to folks’ stories, I gather their triumphs, struggles, solutions, frustrations, and concerns to carry with me to Congress and work on real solutions to the issues Iowans are facing.
