Mike Gronstal, from Council Bluffs, has been the Senate Democratic Leader since 1997. First elected to office in 1982, Gronstal served one term in the Iowa House (1983-85), and is currently in his seventh term in the Senate. He is the State Democratic Leader in the Iowa Senate and has been a lifelong advocate for public education and smart politics.


We are fortunate to have Mike Gronstal represent us, our students, our schools and our profession. In the current political climate it is vital that you understand that we need YOU. Your time, your talent, and--eventually--your treasure will be needed to make sure that we reverse the trend of legislators who are willing to sell out our children for corporate tax cuts.

Senator Harkin asks that WE STAND TOGETHER with Senator Gronstal


At a banquet this spring, state GOP Chairman Matt Strawn told his Iowa Republican audience: "We are 582 days away from telling Mike Gronstal his services are no longer needed."

Well, as someone who has been the #1 target of statewide Iowa Republican campaigns a time or two myself, I can tell you that I am personally sure that Mike has done plenty to deserve that honor this year. In fact, he’s done all the right things to deserve that honor.


Mike Gronstal stands up for the priorities that you and I believe in: High education standards and quality health care access for our kids; fundamental worker's rights; equal opportunity for all Iowans. For that, he’s now under fierce attack.

If the campaign against our Iowa Senate Majority Leader Mike Gronstal is going to be statewide, then he’s probably going to need more help than usual to get re-elected. I’m going to do everything I can to make sure he gets all that he needs. That’s why I’m asking you to help me keep Mike Gronstal in the Iowa Senate - because I think it's important to stand for something.

Please stand with Mike Gronstal--help his re-election campaign by contributing $25, $50, $100, $250 or more.*

To tell you the truth, this may not be the last time Mike will need your help. Judging from Republican rhetoric, they plan to throw everything they've got at him. He will need every one of you standing there beside him, today and tomorrow.

I plan to be there, and I hope you will, too.

Any contribution is appreciated. Go to Mike’s secure online contribution page here or you can also mail a check to:
