Talking “Stilettos in the Cornfield,” Taxes, Trade and More on CNBC

What’s on Iowa farmers’ minds regarding the 2016 presidential election? See how “stilettos in the cornfield” became a hook when Andrew Ross Sorkin interviewed me on CNBC’s “Squawk Box” to discuss key issues here in rural Iowa from a farmer’s point of view.

Check out the video here. It all went down on a beautiful fall afternoon on a farm near Linden, Iowa. Proud of Iowa farmers who give a voice to rural America!
