Businessman-turned-politician Fred Hubbell’s biography is generations deep in Iowa. In fact, it tracks with the history of our state itself. His family, beginning in the mid-1800s, built much of the foundation of the Des Moines, and indeed Iowa, economy. On Hubbell’s campaign website one scrolls quickly to see a photo of his attractive family, smiles widening through the still frame, the picture of comfort and ease. There are two babies and even a little dog.
