Congresswoman Abby Finkenauer endorses Joe Biden for president

Dubuque (KWWL) -- Democratic Congresswoman Abby Finkenauer (IA-1) announced her endorsement of Joe Biden for President of the United States.

She released the following the statement:

I was raised in a small town in rural Iowa, where my family instilled in me the importance of hard work, caring for others, and most importantly the value of public service. I take those values with me every day in Washington, where I have made improving the lives of Iowa’s working families my top priority.

We need a President who reflects those same values and will make America’s working families their top priority. Joe Biden’s character, record, and commitment to rebuilding the backbone of the country — the middle class — is what Iowa and this country needs. Across the country, and especially in Iowa, too many families are being left behind by our current president. It’s time we have leadership in the White House who believes in the value of not only uniting a divided Congress, but uniting our country through common sense, dignity, and respect. "I was raised in a small town in rural Iowa, where my family instilled in me the importance of hard work, caring for others, and most importantly the value of public service. I take those values with me every day in Washington, where I have made improving the lives of Iowa’s working families my top priority.

Congresswoman Finkenauer is the second youngest woman elected to the U.S. House of Representatives and is one of the first two women elected to represent Iowa in the U.S. House of Representatives.

She recently hosted eight presidential candidates at a forum, co-hosted by nine national labor unions, where she highlighted the importance of labor, jobs and rebuilding Iowa's infrastructure.
