DES MOINES, Iowa — Christina Bohannan, a University of Iowa law professor and Democratic nominee for Iowa’s 1st Congressional District, said that she would prefer a more targeted approach to student loan debt relief.

Bohannan said that she favors eliminating student loan debt for people working in professions serving underserved communities. She cited teachers and nurses.
