Tom Steyer’s Need to Impeach Campaign Brings National Town Hall Tour to Iowa
Steyer to discuss Donald Trump offenses against our country and demand local elected officials support Rep. Al Green’s Impeachment Resolution
(DES MOINES, April 16, 2018)—Need to Impeach Founder Tom Steyer is bringing the case to remove Donald Trump from office to Iowa where he will host town halls—part of his nationwide, 30 town hall series—in Des Moines on May 8 and Cedar Rapids on May 10. Steyer is also scheduled to speak at the Iowa House Democrats Dinner on May 9.
Steyer is holding the town hall series, which kicked off with events in Ohio, the Washington D.C. area, and the San Francisco Bay Area, to make the patriotic case to Democrats, Independents, and Republicans about the need for impeachment, and to question why elected leaders in Iowa and across the country ignore the clear mandate from their constituents.
According to a Quinnipiac poll, 76 percent of Democrats support impeaching Trump, yet the only Democratic member of Congress representing Iowa, Rep. Dave Loebsack (Iowa City), voted against Representative Al Green’s (TX – 09) impeachment resolution earlier this year.
“With every day that goes by, Donald Trump destroys our democracy and we need strong leaders in Congress who are not afraid to stand up to him and represent the will of the people who put them in office. Those who condemn Trump but do not back their words with action are enabling the damage he is inflicting on our country. Representative Loebsack should explain why he is acting against his constituents’ wishes by voting no on impeachment. The people of Iowa deserve elected leaders who refuse to back down on our shared principles.”
Steyer launched the Need to Impeach campaign on October 20, 2017 through national television and social media ads. More than 5.1 million people have since signed on to support the campaign, creating a digital army that several political strategists call one of the most powerful political tools in the Democratic party. So far, seven national commercials—including one in Spanish—have aired, reaching more than 2 billion television viewers and more than 454 million people through social media.
