Congressman John Delaney brings 2020 presidential bid to Tipton, Iowa

At a time when politics is a sour subject for many, Rep. John Delaney, (D) Maryland, hopes to sweeten this audience. He’s visiting D’Alicia’s Cupcakery, offering coffee, conversation and a campaign.

“All  these big issues we have in our country right now are actually solvable if we bring the people together,” he said, on Friday, February 2.

Speaking to about 15 guests, Delaney is working on a presidential bid that focuses on narrowing deep political divisions.

“The kind of hyper-partisan politics where people put party ahead of country,” he continued.  “The American people are tired of that.”

This morning audience of mostly seniors is absorbing his message.  With the Iowa Caucuses nearly two years away, it’s a preview of things to come.

“It’s not too early because it’s time to get talking,” said Cedar County voter Gary Doermann. “That’s the most important thing.”
