  • HSDIA Clarification

    My name’s Ellie Konfrst and I’m the chair of High School Democrats of Iowa. Holding that position, I feel the need to clarify that High School Democrats of Iowa does not officially endorsed a candidate in the race for chair of the Iowa Democratic Party. The endorsement from one of our members does not necessarily reflect the views of our organization as a whole.
