AARP Iowa is gearing up for a busy week! With Caucuses right around the corner, volunteers are lining up to attend candidate events in every region of the state. AARP volunteers will ask candidates what their plans are to make Social Security financially sound. Just this past weekend, volunteers attended  more than a dozen events for both Republican and Democrat candidates including events for candidates O'Malley, Rubio, Huckabee, Cruz, Clinton, Trump and Carson.

We're excited to welcome AARP staff from nearby states who have come to Iowa this week to meet our volunteers and help us continue to spread the word about Take A Stand across the state.
