Sep 22, 2010

Two former Iowa lawmakers are launching 50-50 in 2020, with the goal of recruiting and mentoring women to run for elected office in Iowa. We'll talk with Maggie Tinsman and Jean Lloyd-Jones about the effort and its chance for success. Then, we'll get analysis of the two Congressional races in Iowa with female candidates, and reflect on Sarah Palin's visit to the state. Guests include Kelly Thornburg, Iowa NEW Leadership Coordinator for the University of Iowa and Dianne Bystrom, Director of the Carrie Chapman Catt Center for Women and Politics at Iowa State University.
