State Senator Jeff Danielson says that the best campaign advice he ever received was, “to out-drink your opponent.”  The advice came from Democrat State Senator Bill Dotzler, who then explained that the bars are where the working-class people are.  That’s probably a stretch, but bar patrons can provide an interesting setting to discuss political topics.

Danielson might want to ask those working-class bar patrons their opinion on the gas tax.  Danielson supports increasing the Iowa fuel tax by $0.10 a gallon.  The middle class is already struggling to make ends meet in a sluggish economy with gas prices already hovering around $3.50 a gallon.  Asking them to pay even more at the up would only make matters worse.

Below is the video of Sen. Danielson.
