Finkenauer Lands Biden Endorsement on Primary Eve

Finkenauer, Biden

A Dubuque state lawmaker hoping to make the jump to Congress has received her highest-profile endorsement to date on the eve of the primary election. State Representative Abby Finkenauer’s campaign announced Sunday that she’s been endorsed by former Vice President Joe Biden. In a statement, Biden says “we need Abby to bring her grit and determination to the halls of the Capitol where I know from experience she won’t back down.” One of Finkenauer’s first forays into politics was working as a Volunteer Coordinator for Biden’s unsuccessful 2008 bid for President. Finkenauer is seen as the front-runner among the four Democrats seeking their party’s nomination in Iowa’s 1st Congressional District. Whoever wins tomorrow’s primary would move on to face incumbent Republican Rod Blum in November’s general election.
