An early peek at 8 Iowa Democrats lining up to run for governor

BOONE, Ia. —Boone County Democrats held a Picnic for the People at McHose Park here Saturday as an alternative to a big Republican Party event just a few miles away for U.S. Sen. Joni Ernst and other GOP dignitaries.

About 200 Democrats chowed down on pulled pork sandwiches, baked beans, coleslaw and cupcakes. But their main course was speeches with stinging criticism of newly inaugurated Gov. Kim Reynolds and her predecessor, former Gov. Terry Branstad. They heard from eight hopefuls for Iowa's 2018 governor's race who are either official candidates or still exploring a campaign.
