Judge makes pitch for Senate at stop in Davenport

During my internship at the Times, I was able to cover then Democratic candidate Patty Judge, who was making a run for the U.S. Senate seat held by Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa. Judge met supporters at the Scott County Democratic Headquarters in Davenport, Iowa. She kept to Democratic issues, among them calling for a minimum wage of $15 an hour and removing the cap on Social Security taxes for the wealthiest in the nation. She also said that the nation needs to garner the will to tackle the environmental issues, from clean air and water to the global issue of climate change.
