Senator Maggie Hassan (D-NH) will join Former First Lady Christie Vilsack, State Senator Rita Hart, State Representative Abby Finkenauer, Iowa Democratic Party Chair Troy Price, and many more for a Back to Blue Women for Iowa event in Dubuque. Back to Blue is an initiative of the Iowa Democratic Party to increase local engagement and build resources for the 2018 election.

Senator Hassan is the second woman in American history to be elected both Governor and United States Senator. Senator Hassan got her start in public service as an advocate fighting to ensure that children like her son Ben, who experiences severe disabilities, would be fully included in their communities and have the same opportunities that all parents want for their children — and she shares in the Iowa legacy of advocating for every person to have the tools to succeed. She is a driven public servant with a strong record of delivering results. Iowa Democrats are thrilled to welcome Senator Hassan to Dubuque this summer.
