After both former Governor and ex-US Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack (D) and Rep. Cindy Axne (D-West Des Moines) declined to challenge Iowa Sen. Joni Ernst (R), the Democrats were left with no announced Senatorial candidate. That changed yesterday when attorney Kimberly Graham, an Indianola neglected and abused child advocate attorney, announced that she would seek the Democratic nomination. We can expect others to join, but no current elected official is, to date, coming forward to oppose the first term Senator.
