Insiders 5/31/20: Looking Ahead to Tuesday’s Primary Elections


(WHO 13)

Tuesday’s primary sets up a fascinating year ahead. WHO 13 Political Director Dave Price takes a look at the back and forth about millions of dollars in money from outside the state trying to influence Iowans’ decisions.

Military veteran, former state senator, U.S. senator, and now an author. Joni Ernst has a new book out, “Daughter of the Heartland.” She talks about growing up in small town Iowa and later suffering abuse in a relationship and later her marriage. 

Ernst has been watching the Democratic senate primary play out. She spoke with Dave Price about that but first shared whether Congress should consider another aid package to help people during the COVID-19 outbreak.

Iowa Republicans are facing an unusual situation. Rep. Steve King has been in Congress since 2003, longer than any current member in the House.

But his history of controversial comments helped attract four challengers. That includes Steve Reeder of Arnolds Park who has set aside his real estate career for this run for Congress.

With two days until primary night in Iowa, that’s the focus of this week’s Insiders Quick 6.
