In December, The Hawk Eye wrote about John’s fifth swing through Iowa and his forward-thinking message:
“I think I’m the right person for the job. I think I’ve got the right vision for the country,” said Delaney, in the midst of his third term in the House of Representatives. “But not a lot of people know who I am, which is why I’ve gotten in early, to give myself an opportunity to listen to people and introduce myself to people and give them a chance to understand who I am and what I’m all about.”
When Delaney announced his candidacy in July, he also said he would not seek re-election in 2018.
Over the course of an hour, Delaney made his pitch and talked with the group about issues on their mind like health care, the national debt and how to bridge the seemingly growing divide between Republicans and Democrats.
