Democrats re­vive Steak Fry fundraiser

The Washington Times Daily - - POLITICS - — Sally Per­sons

Iowa’s an­nual Steak Fry fundraiser is back af­ter a brief hia­tus since 2014, and the headline speak­ers show Democrats’ grow­ing em­pha­sis on eco­nomic is­sues.

Reps. Cheri Bus­tos of Illi­nois, Seth Moul­ton of Mas­sachusetts and Tim Ryan of Ohio will headline the event on Sept. 30 in Des Moines, the Des Moines Reg­is­ter re­ported.

Iowa Democrats de­cided to bring back for­mer Sen. Tom Harkin’s an­nual event this year in an ef­fort to build the party.

The three mem­bers have all made head­lines in re­cent months for crit­i­ciz­ing their party in the wake of the 2016 elec­tion.

Mr. Ryan even chal­lenged House Mi­nor­ity Leader Nancy Pelosi’s lead­er­ship po­si­tion late last year, say­ing she was tak­ing the party away from work­ing-class is­sues.
