Biggest cheer during @iowademocrats chair @troymprice's opening remarks came after he predicted #Iowa Ds will "send @joniernst into an early retirement." #IASen #HallofFame
Sen @CoryBooker is 1st candidate to speak at #HallofFame event. (19 candidates will each have 5 minutes)
"We are being tested. This is a moral moment in America, and we must meet this test. I'm running for president because we can't take 4 more years of Donald Trump." #iacaucus
But @CoryBooker isn't just running to beat Donald Trump. That's the floor, not the ceiling. We can't just run on what we are against. Democrats need to tell people what we are for. "Every American needs health care, and make no mistake, abortion is health care." #iacaucus

“Freeloader? Meet Dwight Dial, an Iowa farmer who invested $$ in solar to control escalating energy costs from MidAmerican, who required him to pay $2,840 for a new pole and large transformer before he could connect to the grid. MidAm also....(1/3) #ialegis #SunshineTax
requires him to donate 50% of his unused energy to the utility's I-Care program, which directly helps his neighbors in need. In addition to the connection fee he paid, his monthly electrical bill continues to run an average of $175. Yet MidAmerican.... (2/3) #ialegis @SunshineTax
MidAmerican Energy is misleading Iowans to believe that Dwight and other solar customers are getting a free ride. The truth matters. (3/3) #ialegis #SaveIowaSolar #SunshineTax

1) Disturbing to me in #Mueller indictments was allegation of #Russia plant of #IaCaucus #Fraud stories. That broke the back of the party in #Iowa 4 2016 cycle. Caused mass party switches to independent in some parts of #IA. Remember #DemExit? #TrumpRussia #IaPolitics #IaDem
When #DemExit on #twitter & #FB was ongoing, I had a face2face discussion in #Fairfield of voter registration changes at the #JeffersonCounty court house. There were quite a few -- a direct consequence of #Bernie people being angry cuz they had seen SM fraud stories. #IaPolitics
3) I really saw damage from #TrumpRussia #IaCaucusFraud allegations in Oct 2016 going door-to-door in #Fairfield. The #DemVoter lists were "squishy." Lots of changed parties, lots of discussion of the #IaCaucus allegations of fraud and not voting #IaDem. #Mueller #iapolitics

At the @AP 2018 legislative session preview forum with #ialegis leaders and #iagov.

Leaders up first.

Tweet thread threat warning: Long.
#ialegis Leader @janet4iowa says @IowaSenate Dem priorities are job growth, retirement security (see: IPERS), health care access and mental health care.
#ialegis @SenateMajority leader @SenatorDix says top priority is picking up where Senate Republicans left off last year, promoting growth, making Iowa more competitive/desirable to live and work. (He's talking about tax reform/cuts.)
