Presidential candidate John Delaney, a Congressman from Maryland, is crisscrossing Iowa for the entire month of January on a small town blitz of 40 stops, a journey he’s dubbed the “Send A Message” tour. Cruising in the campaign RV, “Big Blue,” Delaney and his field staff made its first stop in Montezuma on Friday, Jan. 3 at Sauced Pizza and Pub.
During his stops, Delaney is hosting meet and greets, knocking on doors, making supporter calls, and meeting with caucus-goers and precinct captains around the state. The schedule is intense and unique with Delaney and his team visiting many small Iowa towns that no Presidential campaign has yet visited.
“I’m surprised to say that I’m still the only candidate who has visited all 99 counties in Iowa, which says something about the focus of the other candidates! I’m calling this final month-long trip before the caucuses the ‘Send A Message Tour’ because I’m asking Iowa voters to send a message that Rural America and Main Street America still matter and that my unique ideas about how to create economic opportunity for everyone – no matter where you live – has to be part of the Democratic platform," said Delaney.
"By coming out to these events and supporting my candidacy, Iowans will also be sending a clear message that the Democratic Party has to fight for Rural America and forgotten small towns, that Iowa is important, that the best way to beat Donald Trump is with a strong and steady nominee who was successful in business and government, and that our nation needs a problem solver with a track record of getting things done."
"I think this Send A Message Tour will be a great way to have one more face to face with Iowans before they exercise their hard-earned right as the first choice in the Presidential nominating process.”
Delaney also made a stop at the Classic Deli in Brooklyn later in the day.
