February 2020 spotlights Iowans as the first decision makers in the nation to select a Democratic Candidate for President of the United States.  The Passport to Victory 2020 Presidential Candidate Tour is a series of fundraising events in Iowa’s First Congressional District designed to introduce the Democrats vying to be the Democratic Nominee for President in the 2020 Election to everyday Iowans.

Our Passport to Victory 2020 Summer Tour is in full swing. The next Summer Tour event will be the Cedar Corridor Region on August 10th in Central City.  Our Fall Tour will include two events, the Heart of Iowa Region on September 22nd in Grinnell and  the Mississippi Region on October 20th in Elkader.  

All the events include an opportunity for candidates to meet one-on-one with hundreds of everyday Iowans, enjoy local dinners, silent auctions, raffles and an opportunity to speak, and gather campaign information from booths. All venues are ADA compliant and functionally accessible. ASL and CART are provided on request. If you need an accommodation you will be able to request one during the registration process.

Join Democrats from all over Iowa as they decide who THEY want to lead the Party and lead the nation.
