DES MOINES, IA – Rep. Bruce Braley took his campaign for US Senate to three Iowa communities today, hosting Meet and Greet events at The Family Table restaurant in Atlantic (Cass County), the Public Library in Corning (Adams County), and North Side Café in Winterset (Madison County). His events today mark Braley’s first campaign events in these communities since announcing his candidacy for Senate.

Braley said, “Today in Iowa, the middle class struggles with rising costs and shrinking opportunities. Politicians in Washington ignore the real problems and often make things worse. I’m running for Senate to fight for the things that matter most to Iowans. And I traveled to Atlantic, Corning, and Winterset today to listen to Iowans’ concerns.

“I grew up in Brooklyn, Iowa, and I’ve never forgotten where I come from. My parents taught me the value of hard work, and I worked hard in jobs like road construction to help put myself through college. In the Senate, I’ll work for Iowa to create jobs, help small businesses succeed, and protect Social Security and Medicare. I’ll fight for middle class Iowans, because that’s where I come from.”

Braley is continuing to travel the state to discuss his background and his campaign to create jobs, help small businesses succeed, and strengthen the middle class. 

Bruce Braley was born in Grinnell and grew up in nearby Brooklyn, Iowa. His father, a Marine who fought on Iwo Jima in World War II, and his mother, a teacher, taught him the value of hard work. Braley worked jobs like road construction and truck driving to help pay his way through college and law school. As an attorney in Waterloo, Braley represented Iowans who took on powerful interests and big corporations. Elected to the US House in 2006, Braley has worked to create Iowa jobs, protect farms, strengthen small businesses, and stand up for veterans. Bruce Braley is running for Senate to fight for the things that matter most to Iowans. He’ll fight for middle class families, because that’s where he comes from.

Braley lives in Waterloo with his wife, Carolyn. They have three children: Lisa, David, and Paul.
