Candidates for the office of Iowa Governor, United States Congress and Iowa Secretary of Agriculture were in Pella Thursday night for a Special Edition News Magazine candidates’ forum, hosted by KNIA/KRLS. Dr. Bob Leonard moderated the discussion, which included thoughts from the candidates on helping small community economies, foreign trade and the role of government, among others.

Those in attendance included Republican Candidate for Governor Rod Roberts; Iowa Secretary of Agriculture Candidate Francis Thicke; United States Senate Democratic candidates Tom Fiegen and Bob Krause; and Scott Batcher, Pat Bertroche, Dave Funk, Jim Gibbons, Mark Rees and Brad Zaun – all of whom are Republicans seeking their party’s nomination for U.S. Congress.
