DES MOINES, IA (CNN Newsource) — Democratic presidential candidate and Valley Congressman Tim Ryan made his first campaign stops in Iowa.
Ryan introduced himself to voters on Sunday at a Des Moines brewing company.
He said he will set himself apart from other Democrats in the race by focusing on basic issues like economics, education and health — but with a different spin.
“Can’t just be the same old thing, it’s gotta be like, ‘Look, we need a new education system, we need a new economic vision and new economic system, we need a health care system that focuses more on prevention,'” Ryan said. “I think that can get people excited because it’s going to take everybody to help develop that.”
Ryan also said his main focus right now is on unifying the country.
He spoke at a number of events in Des Moines and Panora on Monday.
