Tom Fiegen, Rob Hogg, Patty Judge and Bob Krause, the four Democrats vying for their party's nomination to run for U.S. Senate, all agree that water quality needs to be addressed. But they have different ideas about what should be done.
Patty Judge responded to a question about a veto by former Gov. Chet Culver involving collective bargaining, saying she regrets all sides couldn't come together in agreement at the time. Rob Hogg, who serves in the State Senate, says legislators tried to work with the Culver administration on a solution and offered to make changes so the governor would support the bill.
