U.S. Senate hopeful David Young stops in Hampton

He’s visited 96 of Iowa’s 99 counties, but David Young knows he still has a long road ahead of him if he’s to secure the Republican Party’s nomination for the U.S. Senate in the June 2014 GOP primary.
 
“It’s a work ethic I learned from Senator Grassley – get out there, see the people and listen to them,” he said.
Young stopped in Hampton on Friday and visited with locals about issues facing Iowans and the nation as part of his Senate campaign.
 
He threw his hat into the ring after long-time Iowa Senator Tom Harkin announced he wouldn’t seek re-election after his term expires in 2015.
 
Five other candidates are vying for the Republican nomination, and Young said he’s been campaigning fervently to set himself apart from the crowded field.
