Challenger Betting That Medicaid Problems Will Convince Iowans To Change To New Governor
WEST DES MOINES, Iowa--Fred Hubbell, a retired Des Moines business man and philanthropist, is making the Branstad-Reynolds administration's 2016 decision to privatize Medicaid delivery services the main thrust of his Democratic campaign for governor this week. Hubbell met Tuesday with about a dozen organizations that provide care to Iowans with physical, mental or developmental challenges. "Beginning day one, we're going to change this system," Hubbell pledged to the group if elected governor.
