Grassroots veterans group points to legislators’ record on veterans issues, urges support
Thursday announced its support for Congressmen Rod Blum (R-Iowa) and David Young (R-Iowa), highlighting their record on veterans issues during their time in Congress. The group will mobilize its field staff to speak directly with voters in Iowa and will conduct a direct mail effort highlighting the lawmakers’ records on key veterans policies.
CVA Executive Director, Dan Caldwell, had this to say about the group’s support:
“We are committed to supporting those who have supported our veterans, and Reps. Blum and Young have consistently voted for pro-veteran policies while in Congress. With their votes in support of increasing health care choice for veterans and bringing much-needed accountability to the VA, they have shown a true commitment to ensuring Iowa’s veterans are a priority. We urge all voters to vote for them in November.”

Notably, Reps. Blum and Young voted in support of the VA Accountability and Whistleblower Protection Act, a law to ensure bad actors at the VA can be held accountable for their actions, and most recently the VA MISSION Act, a law to provide more health care options for our nation’s veterans.
