2020 Democrats are wooing voters at the Iowa State Fair. Here\'s what they\'re saying

DES MOINES — The Iowa State Fair is famous for a lot of things: fried delicacies, a cow sculpted in butter, lots of food on a stick and, of course, visits from politicians.

The Des Moines Register Political Soapbox kicked off at the fair on Thursday and will host more than 20 candidates running for president throughout the weekend.

Saturday
Joe Sestak

The former congressman from Pennsylvania's speech was likely his introduction to many voters.

A Navy veteran and unknown candidate who entered the race in June, Sestak boasted about his career in the military and told Iowans the story of his daughter, who battled brain cancer and has since beaten it.

He said her battle was the deciding factor that made him switch from a Republican to a Democrat in 2009 as he realized the importance of a strong health care plan and the importance of “health security.”
