Why I would support Bruce Braley

2 Nov

Bruce Braley is an American politician and attorney who has served as the U.S Representative for Iowa’s 1st congressional district since 2007. He is a member of the Democratic party and I would support him if I was to vote in this midterm election. According to pre-election forecasts, Iowa is an state where there is no certainty yet of who is going to win.

I have now read about Bruce Braley and I think I would support him. He wants to raise the minimum wage from $7.25 to $10.10 per hour. He is also very interested in economic fairness, creating jobs , and investing in education. He is also working to create better advantages for the middle class as he thinks they are being squeezed more than ever, while Wall Street bankers and big companies are making record profits.  Braley is also pro-choice when it comes to abortion, and has worked hard to make abortion an option to everyone.

Michelle Obama is also supporting Braley and held a speech early in September. She began her speech by saying “I am beyond thrilled to be here today to support your next senator from Iowa, our friend Bruce”

After finding out about Bruce Braley I hope he wins the midterm election in Iowa and gets to keep up the good work he does. So now all we can do is to wait and see if the Iowans will vote for Braley on November the 4th. I hope they do!
