DES MOINES — U.S. Sen. Tom Harkin is endorsing fellow Democrat Bruce Braley to replace him in the U.S. Senate.
Harkin announced his support for Braley in a press release Saturday, saying Braley “has fought for working people and the struggling middle class.”
Braley announced in February that he would seek the Senate seat held for decades by Harkin, who won’t seek re-election. Braley is a four-term House member from Waterloo.
Braley also has been endorsed by Iowa Rep. Dave Loebsack and by former Iowa Congressman Leonard Boswell, as well as Iowa Attorney General Tom Miller and Treasurer Michael Fitzgerald. All are Democrats.
