Do Hart & Scholten Back Biden?
It’s time Rita Hart and J.D. Scholten tell Iowans where they stand.
Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, Hillary Clinton, and even Bernie Sanders have all officially endorsed Joe Biden for president. Reps. Cindy Axne and Abby Finkenauer have also endorsed Biden. With Democrats now clearly rallying around the Vice President despite corroborated sexual assault allegations, it’s time Rita Hart and J.D. Scholten tell Iowans where they stand.
Rita Hart has been endorsed by Reps. Axne and Finkenauer. Not surprisingly, all three have been silent on the allegations of sexual assault made against Joe Biden. Hart has also received an endorsement from EMILY’s List, the same group that endorsed Elizabeth Warren in the primary but has yet to back Biden. This begs the question: Where does Rita Hart stand on these corroborated allegations of sexual assault? Does she support Joe Biden?
J.D. Scholten also hasn’t said a word about Biden. Like Hart, Scholten has no Democratic primary challenger, making him the presumptive Democratic nominee in the fourth district. It’s puzzling that he hasn’t even answered whether or not he supports his party’s nominee for president. Iowans deserve to know: Does J.D. Scholten support Joe Biden for president?
If Iowans can’t count on Hart or Scholten to answer this basic question, it’s clear they can’t trust Hart or Scholten to represent them in Congress.
