A Republican seeking the nomination to run for U.S. Representative for District 2 of Iowa visited Washington this week. Dr. Mariannette Miller-Meeks made a campaign stop at the Coffee Corner Tuesday to meet with constituents. While visiting she stated why she feels voters should consider her because she has a message the resonates with voters who are disgruntled with Washington D.C. When asked if she would increase the minimum wage as part of increasing take home pay, she said she supports federal policies that allow companies to expand and spoke in favor of such measures Governor Terry Branstad has done in Iowa.
Miller-Meeks is facing Mark Lofgren of Muscatine and Matthew Waldren of Eddyville in the June 3rd primary. If Miller-Meeks wins the nomination, it will be her third time running against incumbent Dave Loebsack.
