Elizabeth Warren lands coveted endorsement from Art Cullen and Storm Lake Times

The Storm Lake Times, led by Pulitzer Prize winner Art Cullen, on Wednesday endorsed U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren for president — a highly sought-after endorsement for candidates who want to win over rural voters.

In his endorsement, Cullen wrote Warren has "developed the most extensive agenda" to lift up rural Americans. Rural Storm Lake is in deep red Buena Vista County, where registered Republicans outnumber registered Democrats 36% to 26%, and about 38% are independents. "Warren is campaigning to give us a fighting chance," he wrote...

...Cullen specifically touted Warren's plan to empower farmers in the fight against climate change by paying farmers to sequester carbon and prevent surface water pollution.

His endorsement also gives a shoutout to other Democrats he's met with, saying any of them "would restore integrity and honor to the Oval Office." He specifically mentions U.S. Sen. Amy Klobuchar, from Minnesota, for her understanding of rural communities. But it's Warren who he says is his No. 1 choice for the Iowa Caucus on Feb. 3.

”Warren shows a real feeling for places left behind because she comes from there," Cullen wrote, referencing her Oklahoma upbringing. "She had hollered herself hoarse that day in January railing against the corruption on defiant display in the White House. Elizabeth Warren is fighting on principle like nobody else to give us a chance."
