Hon. Tom Vilsack: Democrats struggle to speak to rural voters
Speaking to The Washington Post's James Hohmann Tuesday, Former Iowa Gov. Tom Vilsack said Democrats struggle to reach rural voters. "We don't do as good of a job at speaking directly to rural voters," he said, noting that the party generally reaches other minority groups. Despite this, Vilsack says there is an opportunity for Clinton to "drive a wedge" between her and Donald Trump in Iowa, who he says has wavered on his position on renewable fuel standards, an issue important to rural voters in the Midwest.
