Democrats revive Steak Fry fundraiser
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.
