We need people like Liz Mathis in Congress to stand up for the hard working families across Iowa and fight the constant attempts to roll back workers’ rights. AFSCME is proud to endorse Liz Mathis for Congress and we look forward to working alongside her when she gets to Washington.”

AFSCME Council 61 President Rick Eilander

“The leadership from IBEW Locals across Iowa have come together and unanimously voted to endorse Liz Mathis. Liz’s long track record of leadership on behalf of working men and women makes her the clear choice to represent Iowa’s 2nd District in Washington. At a time when record numbers of union members are standing together to demand fair wages, good benefits, and safe working conditions, Liz will be the champion Iowa’s workers need.”

“State Senator Liz Mathis has been a champion for prioritizing Iowa’s agricultural communities in our climate solutions throughout her career in the state legislature. We know she will continue to fight for clean energy and a strong democracy for all communities and we could not be more excited to support her campaign for Congress.”
