Congressman Dave Loebsack of Iowa City is a Hillary Clinton “super” delegate at this week’s Democratic National Convention and he says tonight will likely be a difference-maker for Clinton’s campaign.
“A lot of people have a lot of opinions about her over the last several decades, but this is it,” Loebsack says. “I mean, this the big show and this is her opportunity to present herself to the world.”
Loebsack was a political science professor at Cornell College in Mount Versnon when he was first elected to congress in 2006. According to Loebsack, the speeches delivered at the convention last night “deconstructed” Donald Trump.
“We’ll see what happens tonight, but it’s going to be very competitive in Iowa. I’ve said that from the very beginning…but I do believer Hillary’s going to prevail,” Loebsack says. “Tonight’s going to make some difference, I think.”
Loebsack was a delegate for Bill Bradley at the Democratic National Convention in Los Angeles 16 years ago. In 2008, he was a member of congress and, therefore, a “super” delegate at the Democrats’ convention that year in Denver.
