Castro in Iowa

Today I visited @TPI_Composites in Iowa to announce my plan to double wind power in the United States and expand exports of green technology around the globe. We don’t have to choose between protecting our environment & growing our economy. We can do both.

Bennet in Iowa

Following his soapbox speech at the @IowaStateFair, @MichaelBennet came by to support #windpower! One of the great stats discussed from our blade: wind pays over $20 million in annual lease payments to Iowa farmers, providing a steady source of income. #AmericanWindWeek
