DNC on Pence Visiting Iowa as State Crosses 50,000 COVID Cases

DNC Spokeswoman Maddie McComb released the following statement on Pence visiting Iowa as the state hits 50,000 cases: 

“It didn’t have to be this bad, but Mike Pence and Donald Trump’s failure to prepare or contain the coronavirus has now led to more than 50,000 positive cases in Iowa alone. As Pence heads to the Hawkeye state for a political photo op, Iowans are still dealing with the aftermath of devastating flooding, a chaotic trade war that Trump lost, and massive unemployment across the state. Pence should stop the political games, head back to Washington, and work on the coronavirus task force he was charged with leading. Iowans deserve more than the failed leadership they’re currently seeing from the Trump White House.”
