The first quarter of fundraising is in the books for political candidates in Iowa.
Republican Marianette Miller-Meeks is running for Iowa's second congressional district. Though she's only been in the race about seven weeks, Miller-Meeks said Wednesday her campaign has raised about $110,000 so far. She said that momentum is a good indicator for her campaign moving forward.
"You want to keep the momentum rolling and you want to know that your message resonates," Miller-Meeks said. "And when you see contributions coming in, you know that your message is hitting home. So people want the mess in Washington fixed and they want to send a doctor/veteran/problem solver to Washington to fix it."
Miller-Meeks said as she's been traveling across the district, healthcare and government accountability are the issues Iowans are most concerned with. Next, Miller-Meeks said she is visiting the eastern part of the district for several more meet and greet opportunities.
