The two candidates — in their joint statement — said the agreement means “Iowans across the state will have access to a vigorous debate about the future of Iowa.”
Jake Porter, the Libertarian Party’s nominee for governor, tweeted tonight that he will host his own events to discuss “real solutions” and he’ll let Hubbell and Reynolds, who he referred to as “the two children…fight somewhere else.”
