The attached document represents the view of the STAR*PAC Central Committee and advocates your involvement in your respective 2018 Congressional seat campaign in Iowa. We oppose all Republican candidates in that enable an administration that is dangerous to world peace as well as our national security and well-being.
We sponsored a two hour forum on Sunday, May 15, featuring the four Democratic candidates for the U.S. Senate from Iowa. Rodger Routh, Routh Video Production, has edited the following video down to the fifteen questions posed followed by each candidate's response. We thank Rodger for his fine work in providing this recap to be shared.

The forum was moderated by Des Moines Mayor Frank Cownie, who posed the questions on behalf of STAR*PAC and our ten co-sponsoring organizations. The candidates are Tom Fiegen, Clarence; Rob Hogg, Cedar Rapids; Patty Judge, Albia; and Bob Krause, Fairfield.
These are the fifteen key questions STAR*PAC has prepared for federal candidates to address our primary concerns about foreign policy, military spending and humane treatment for migrants--so that Iowa candidates for the US Senate and Congress may focus on them.
Des Moines, Iowa -- STAR*PAC, Iowa’s Stop the Arms Race Political Action Committee, today announced its endorsement of Martin O’Malley for the Democratic Party nomination for President. STAR*PAC’s Central Committee voted unanimously to endorse Governor O’Malley for new foreign policy leadership.
“Martin O’Malley will bring the new leadership our country needs to wage peace in the world as well as here at home,” said STAR*PAC chairperson Tom Leffler. “We urge citizens to attend Democratic Party caucuses Feb. 1 and caucus for Martin O’Malley. “
Leffler said STAR*PAC selected Martin O’Malley for his effective record as Governor of Maryland, and for his advocacy of fresh thinking and a new approach on foreign policy.
“O’Malley supports the means of waging peace that STAR*PAC stands for,” Leffler said. “Governor O’Malley knows the peril of beating the drums of war, and would adopt a more far-seeing foreign policy approach to peacefully elevate America’s strength at home and abroad.”
