Pauline Taylor

"As a City of Iowa City Council member, a retired nurse, and someone who also grew up on the south side of DesMoines, I appreciate individuals who are committed to the health and well being of their communities. Eddie Mauro is one of those individuals. He has the values, the drive and the leadership ability to tackle important issues such as: universal health care, affordable housing, and bringing our diverse communities together. I am confident that he will get things done."

Ako Abdul-Samad
State Representative, Des Moines

Rep. Ako Abdul-Samad

As a person of faith, Eddie has shown that he will listen and engage with anyone. Eddie is a Catholic, but our faith values are Iowa values that bring us together. His faith is at his core, and he has shown me that he is committed to bringing people together, rather than wedging us apart.”

Frantz Whitfield Endorses Eddie Mauro
Senior Pastor at Mount Carmel Missionary Baptist Church

Frantz Whitfield

"It has become quite evident that our Republican counterparts have put politics over people. It is crucial that we put a new face in Washington that will have Iowans' best interests at heart, and Eddie Mauro is that advocate that we can truly believe in. Senator Joni Ernst has given us false hopes, and broken promises for too long, and the only person capable to clean up the moral disaster that’s been created is Eddie Mauro. Join me in supporting Eddie, and watch the journey to change begin to unfold for a better Iowa and America."

Som Baccam
Nurse, Former School Board Member

Som Baccam

Rob Johnson Endorses Eddie Mauro
Mental Health Advocate, Associate Pastor Corinthian Baptist

Rob Johnson

“We need a voice - my community needs a voice in the U.S. Senate that isn’t afraid to stand up for the voiceless. We need a fighter who isn’t afraid to fight for those who can’t fight for themselves. We believe Eddie Mauro is that voice and be that fighter.”


Heather Jones Endorses Eddie Mauro

Judy L. Anderson
Board Member, Central Iowa Shelter & Services

Judy L. Anderson

Mitch Henry endorses Eddie Mauro
Co-Founder Asian & Latino Coalition, former LULAC Council 307 Political Director, U.S. Navy Veteran

Mitch Henry

"Eddie will fight for our diverse communities and for working people everywhere. His leadership and strength are desperately needed at a time of great division and fear in America. Eddie has a long history of working for immigrant rights and social justice. The Latino and Asian American electorate are hungry for a new type of leadership that stands up to special interests and puts people before politics. Eddie is dedicated to service and advocacy as a champion for those without a voice."

Charlie McConkey
State Representative, member United Steelworkers Local 3141

Rep. Charlie McConkey

“Eddie is a community organizer at heart. He helped found AMOS in Des Moines, he has fought alongside members of organized labor for workplace and social justice for years. He’s the right person to defeat Joni Ernst and fight for workers in D.C.”

Christine Curry Endorses Eddie Mauro
Co-Chair, #MauroGreenTeam

Christine Curry

"Eddie is a climate champion. He understands that Iowa's farmers are leaders in confronting climate change, improving soil health and protecting clean water for future generations. He recognizes that climate change is a major threat to our national security and our health."

Donna Crum
Chair, Mills County Democrats

Donna Crum

“Eddie grew up working like many of us; spending time on his uncle's farm, driving a truck, working in a warehouse and today works with Main Street small businesses in all 99 Iowa counties. He understands the struggles out here in small-town Iowa and will work across the aisle to solve problems while standing up for Iowa values.”

Emily Webb
In-House Counsel, BusinessSolver, Des Moines Attorney

Emily Webb

“Eddie has provided paid family leave and other benefits at UIG insurance that have created an environment that has helped support women and created an environment where female leaders can grow. He’ll work tirelessly to promote those same benefits as a member of the United States Senate.”

Mark Thompsen
Activist & Organizer, Urbandale

Mark Thompsen

“Eddie will be a champion for civil rights for all Iowans. He sees his faith as driving his commitment to protecting the rights of the LGBTQ community rather than as a reason to demonize and divide. He does business all over the state and has an ability to bring people together on issues that are challenging to some. I’m looking forward to the great things he can get done in the U.S. Senate.”
