Burlington, VT – Today, Democracy for America (DFA), endorsed Christie Vilsack for Congress.  Vilsack, a native Iowan, will stand up for women’s rights and make sure healthcare is accessible and affordable for all Iowans. Not only has Christie created a seven-point plant to make healthcare more affordable she has also created a plan to bring jobs back to the region.  Each plan she created is thorough and sound.

"Christie has a long history supporting and acting in the best interest of Iowans,” said Jim Dean, Chair of DFA. “By electing her to represent their interests in Washington, Iowans will have a strong advocate for the people – not the extremist tea party agenda.  She’ll work to bring jobs back to America’s Heartland and create a political climate where a Farm Bill can pass Congress without hurting those in need. Christie is the real deal and the right direction for the Hawkeye State.”

Christie Vilsack responded to the DFA endorsement with enthusiasm:

Christie Vilsack: “Thank you to DFA for recognizing the importance of this election and the clear choice in front of Iowa voters.  I’m running for Congress because we need to rebuild the middle class and create jobs in small towns and cities like those in the 4th district.  The American people don’t need another partisan fighter in Congress, they need someone who is willing to work across party lines to do the right thing for the middle class.”
