The highlight of my US Senate campaign was the opportunity to get to know Dr Doug. Even though he was my competitor, I looked forward to having him as a lifetime friend. Doug's tragic passing is a painful loss, especially after I had the opportunity to build a great new friendship.
While Braley & Ernst prepared to attack each other at the SAU debate three days ago, Doug and I shared dinner, dreams and laughs. May God bless Doug's soul and watch over his family. Dr Doug was a truly amazing person...clearly Iowa's best choice of six on the ballot.
