“I’m All In”

It’s official. Progressive Kim Weaver announced her candidacy to the nation on MSNBC’s AM Joy Sunday morning. Weaver gained national celebrity after a tweet by Representative Steve King claiming “We can’t restore our civilization with somebody else’s babies”, which drew condemnation from even some of his strongest supporters in government.

Kim Weaver is the second to officially announce her candidacy for Iowa’s Fourth District congressional seat. Ryan Meyer announced first and  Dirk Deam, a professor of political science at Iowa State University, is also expected to announce his candidacy in the very near future.

 

*Editor’s note: the original publication of this article started that Weaver was the first to announce. The article has been updated to correct that information.
