Harris in Iowa
About an hour south of Des Moines, neither guns nor health care were the focus for Loras College senior Jake Janson. The Coyote Run Farm intern is passionate about climate change, and he told Harris he planned to caucus for the candidate who would make climate change “the biggest priority.”
“I don’t know if I want to have kids — like, it’s just that scary,” said Janson, who said he would consider Harris but for now, climate-focused Washington Gov. Jay Inslee is his first pick.
Climate change had come up at an earlier event, too. Harris said at Storm Lake stop, “The way I used to joke about it is that I care about the environment, not because I have any particular interest in hugging a tree, but I have a very strong interesting in hugging a healthy baby.”
