Iowa Candidate Patty Judge Backs Tuition-Free Plan

ANKENY — Improving access to community colleges and increasing the availability of federal tuition aid dominated a conversation between U.S. Senate candidate Patty Judge and a handful of Des Moines-area students and recent graduates Thursday.

Judge held the higher-education affordability chat on the Ankeny campus of the Des Moines Area Community College after announcing several education policy ideas this week ranging from preschool accessibility to college affordability.
