Bernie Sanders delivered one of his final appeals to Iowa voters yesterday in a Grinnell College gymnasium filled with over 1,200 supporters.
Speaking just a couple hours before a town hall forum in Des Moines, he did not mention by name his Democratic caucus rivals Hillary Clinton or Martin O’Malley. Instead, he focused his speech on Republican policies that he says coddle rich families like the Waltons and other corporate-owning bloodlines.
“It is too late for establishment politics, too late for establishment economics… We must have the courage to stand up to a billionaire class whose greed has destroyed the lives of millions of people. That is the issue. That is what this campaign is about,” he said at the opening of his speech.
Strengthen • Grow • Evolve is a collaborative campaign led by two Iowa City-based arts nonprofits, The Englert Theatre and FilmScene that seeks a major reinvestment to strengthen the arts through modern and historic venues, innovative programming, and new models of collaboration.
