Sen. Hatch Talks Women in Politics
IOWA CITY, Iowa (CBS 2/FOX 28) -- Senator Jack Hatch announced today that if he were to elected, half the department heads in his cabinet would be women.
The gubernatorial candidate made his announcement outside of a Women In Politics symposium at the Old Capitol in Iowa City. The democrat argues that since women make up half of Iowa's population, so their government should represent that.
The day-long symposium was sponsored in part by the University of Iowa Policy Center to examine why women do and do not run for public office.
