Local union head Cathy Glasson (D) started airing TV ads Thursday about implementing universal single-payer health care, raising the minimum hourly wage to $15, and enabling union membership

The spots will run “on television stations throughout the month of March in the two largest media markets of Des Moines and Cedar Rapids and will also run heavily on digital networks throughout the rest of the state.” The 15-second ads “will run multiple times in a commercial television break.” (release)

Former state economic development chief Fred Hubbell (D) began airing a new TV ad Thursday “as part of a statewide buy” in which he accuses Gov. Kim Reynolds (R) of slashing “millions in schools and health care for corporate giveaways. That doesn’t add up!” (release)

Reynolds “launched a multi-platform digital campaign … to highlight the fact that Iowa was just named the best state in the country by US News and World Report.” (release)
