“We need a new Commander-in-Chief.”   

This week, three Democratic candidates for president stopped in Sioux City, including California Senator Kamala Harris.

“As we reflect on the Independence of our nation there is a lot of good and a lot worth fighting for.”

Harris held a town hall meeting to an overflow crowd at a church on West Fourth Street.  An estimated 350 people heard her message for America.  

“It’s time to turn the page and time it’s time to write the next chapter in the history on our nation.”

An overflow crowd of more than 300 people packed a campaign event this morning for California Senator Kamala Harris in Sioux City.

Harris says the country needs a new Commander-in-Chief because President Trump hasn’t delivered on promises to help the middle class or improve the health care system.   

Harris is one of three candidates visiting Sioux City this week.  South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg held a town hall meeting at North High School on Wednesday and the day before Ohio Congressman Tim Ryan attracted a few dozen people to Hardline Coffee in downtown Sioux City.

Ohio Congressman Tim Ryan stopped in Sioux City this morning in his quest to win the Democratic presidential nomination.

He talked about his major plan to get back to fundamentals and improve the quality of life for young people in the country.

“What do we have to do in the United States to be competitive, to lift people up to rebuild the middle class?   Invest in our people to make sure that every one of our citizens is on the field healthy, educated, creative, resilient and ready to go out and help us win the future.”
