Nevada graduate Brent Welder, who is running for Congress in one of the country’s most competitive districts, Kansas’ Third, will get a boost of support from Tom Harkin, longtime U.S. Senator.

Harkin is hosting a fundraiser for Welder in Des Moines on Saturday, Dec. 2, from 5-7 p.m. The event will be held at the home of Roxanne and James Conlin, 2900 Southern Hills Circle.

In addition to Harkin, Iowa House Democratic Leader Mark Smith will be on hand that evening, giving his support to Welder as well.

“I got my start in politics working for Sen. Tom Harkin in college,” Welder said.

Contributions of $250, $500 or $1,000 are all being accepted at this event. If you have questions, or would like to make reservation, please contact Shawn Borich at or call 913-730-8733.
