Iowa Campaign Update

vote_buttons.png

On Midwest Week, a campaign update for Iowa - the fight over absentee ballot applications and the key race for the US Senate.

Herb Trix's guest in Erin Murphy, Lee Enterprises bureau chief in Des Moines, and his work appears here in the Quad City Times and Muscatine Journal.

You can also hear Midwest Week Fridays on WVIK at 6:20 pm during All Things Considered. 

A native of Detroit, Herb Trix began his radio career as a country-western disc jockey in Roswell, New Mexico (“KRSY, your superkicker in the Pecos Valley”), in 1978. After a stint at an oldies station in Topeka, Kansas (imagine getting paid to play “Louie Louie” and “Great Balls of Fire”), he wormed his way into news, first in Topeka, and then in Freeport Illinois.
