Fred Hubbell visits Clay County Fair

SPENCER, IA (KTIV) – Nominee for Iowa Governor, visited the Clay County Fair Sunday afternoon.

Fred Hubbell made his presence in Siouxland, meeting the locals in the area, and of course, eating a pork chop.

Hubbell went around the fairgrounds all afternoon sharing his love for the Spencer Community.

The Clay County Fair is the biggest county fair in the state of Iowa.

Hubbell says being part of the Spencer community helps him understand their life agriculturally.

He says rural Iowa is a big part of the state of Iowa’s success.

“Somebody from Des Moines cares about all of Iowa, not just Des Moines, but actually cares about Spencer, cares about cares about Clay County, cares about agriculture, farming. And wants to experience what they experience on a daily basis so we can learn from them and figure out how we can improve our state for everybody,” says Fred

Hubbell, the Democratic nominee for Governor of Iowa.

This was Hubbell’s first experience at the Clay County Fair.

Pork Chops on a stick is one of his favorites, so he said he was also looking forward to eating at the fair.
