We Heart Iowa
We’ve followed the campaign trail to Cleveland, Las Vegas, Boulder, and Milwaukee; and last Friday, we took over Des Moines. We teamed up with iHeartMedia and the Iowa Democratic Party as they hosted the appropriately named, iHeartPolitics Democratic Pre-Debate Party. Americana Restaurant and Lounge provided the perfect setting for top names in politics, media, and influence groups to gather before the second Democratic debate. Guests were treated to cocktails and hors d’oeuvres and an exclusive iHeartRadio playlist.
Thank you to iHeartMedia, the Iowa Democratic Party, and especially Adam Weiss and Kenny Day for throwing a fantastic event.
