People Over Profits Tour

Tom was in Iowa from January 1st to the 5th on a bus tour that started in Council Bluffs and ended in Newton.

Approaching the final sprint to the caucus, voters across Iowa had the opportunity to talk with Tom about the issues they care about, how he will take action on them, and how together we can save the planet.

This bus tour continued to build on the momentum that TeamTom Iowa sees every day — receiving 10% in the Morning Consult early states tracker, opening over a dozen offices across the state, and rapidly expanding the staff, Tom’s grassroots movement is about connecting with all Iowans.

January 1

A month out from the caucus, it’s all hands on deck to persuade voters and turn them out on caucus night. Our People Over Profits Tour kicked off with a Town Hall in Council Bluffs. During the first stop of his bus tour across Iowa, Tom took questions on term limits, a wealth tax, and how we need to ditch conventional thinking and beat Trump on the economy to win in November for all Americans.


January 2

Tom visited western Iowa to speak with rural communities about the impacts of continual flooding, critical grocery store shutdowns, and the steps we can take to revitalize rural America and bolster our nation’s rural economy.

January 3

Along the stops in Northwest Iowa, Tom joined his team in Dickenson County to open a new office in Spirit Lake. TeamTom is the first campaign to have an office in the area, adding to the more than a dozen offices the campaign now has across Iowa. Tom has been organizing in Iowa since 2014, and his wife, Kat Taylor, daughter Evi, and eldest son Sam have all knocked doors with TeamTom Iowa.

Tom knows that spurring economic growth and prosperity also means ensuring economic justice for all Americans. And critical to building shared prosperity is ensuring every person is paid a living wage and has access to wealth-building opportunities – like home ownership – now and for the future. On these stops (Hampton, Mason City, New Hampton, and Waterloo), Tom spoke with Iowans to address inequality in historically redlined communities and restructure our economy and banking system to create better access to opportunity, especially for black and brown communities.

Tom is committed to working alongside Iowans and the whole nation to rebuild America in a way that makes the green economy a win-win economy.
