iPhone : As an Iowan, I endorse this in the same way I endorse Julián Castro--easily and without reservations.

But we’ve changed in the 50 years since order was established—and I believe it’s time our primaries reflect our nation’s diversity.

iPhone : This is the work that goes into feeding America. These are the people who make our meals possible.
