Hubbell: Iowa must be welcoming and inclusive, supporting the success of every community to get our state growing. Because Perez specified satellite caucuses in his request for a recanvass, an area where Sanders support was strong, Sanders supporters on social media accused the of rigging the caucus against him. Hubbell: My number one priority as governor is to fully fund pre-K and K-12 education, make college affordable and restore Iowa as a leader in education like we used to be.

I don't trust the state not to violate our civil liberties on this issue. Glasson: If universal healthcare doesn't happen at the federal level, we need a state-run single payer healthcare system here in Iowa. Battaglia: Move away from the practice of corporate welfare.

Mauro: President Trump is recklessly endangering our economy by starting unnecessary and costly trade wars. We have an opportunity to support small businesses that will create jobs, pay their workers a fair wage, and strengthen their communities.
