Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries is right: Republicans hold their slimmest and weakest House majority in decades. We only need to flip FOUR seats to retake the House. If we can get a headstart on the GOP, Jeffries knows we can do that. So can we count on you to give as little as $4 ahead of our first major deadline of the year so we can win the House, hold the Senate, and defend the Presidency?
Franken is a decorated US Navy Admiral who has advised US Presidents including President Barack Obama and has significant Pentagon experience through strategy, policy and planning positions involving the Indo-Pacific, the Middle East, Europe and Africa. He holds STEM degrees from the University of Nebraska and Naval Postgraduate School with a background in both physics and engineering. He retired as a three-star Admiral in 2017.
Recent polling shows Franken and incumbent GOP Sen. Chuck Grassley neck-and-neck in a general election contest, with Franken drawing support across the partisan spectrum to form a bipartisan coalition of voters. This comes at a time when Grassley is historically unpopular with fewer than 1 in 3 Iowans saying they plan on voting for him.
If elected, Mike Franken would become the most experienced military leader ever elected to the U.S. Senate and his victory would secure our pro-science majority in the Senate through 2022.
