The Democratic Contender also believes more emphasis should be placed on women's health issues.  Should Vilsack be elected, she wouldl be the first Iowa woman to hold a Congressional office.  Iowa and Mississippi are the only two states that have not elected a woman Governor, Congresswoman, or U-S Senator.
