IFU Senate Candidate Conversation with Senator Chuck Grassley:

IFU Senate Candidate Conversation with Admiral Michael Franken: 

We are using a Google Form to collect question submissions ahead of time from Iowa Farmers Union members to be asked to the Senate Candidates LIVE during the conversation. Although the Webinar is open to the public, ONLY questions submitted by current IFU members will be considered. Due to time restraints, not all questions that are submitted will be asked. Three Iowa Farmers Union members will be asking the chosen questions during the session. 

The conversations will be exclusively about agriculture and rural issues. We look forward to lively conversations with the two Senate Candidates about issues that are important to Iowa’s farmers and rural communities. Please contact Tommy Hexter at [email protected] with any questions and save the date for this important opportunity.
