More than 11,000 tickets have been sold for the Polk County Democratic Party’s Steak Fry Saturday in Des Moines. Seventeen presidential candidates will take the stage and address the crowd. The county party rebooted the Steak Fry in 2017 which for years was hosted by Democratic Sen. Tom Harkin who retired from office in 2014 and was replaced by Republican Sen. Joni Ernst.
