Walsh has penned a fundraising email for Braley and is raffling off a pair of VIP tickets for an upcoming Eagles show in the Hawkeye State.

"Bruce and his wife first met at an Eagles concert back when they were both students at Iowa State — and while I didn’t know him then, I’m proud to say I know him now and that I support Bruce in his campaign to become the next U.S. Senator of Iowa," Walsh writes in the email.

"We've got a concert coming up in Des Moines on September 6th, and I can't think of a better way to say 'I back Bruce' than by giving one of his grassroots supporters a pair of tickets and passes to a private meet and greet — the VIP treatment! — at our show," he continues.

Braley is locked in a tough race with Iowa state Sen. Joni Ernst (R). The fundraiser is the latest sign Democrats aren't taking it easy in Iowa.
