Ashley Hinson Announces Candidacy for Congress in IA-01 

Marion, IA – Today Ashley Hinson, a former successful news reporter for KCRG-TV9, current Iowa state House member and mother of two, announced her candidacy for Congress as a Republican in Iowa’s 1st District:

For more than a decade, I have worked closely with members of our community to report on hardships facing Iowa families, and as a mom raising two sons here, I know these struggles firsthand. I fought in the legislature to balance budgets, improve our schools and help grow our economy, and now I’m ready to bring some Iowa common sense to Congress,” Hinson said. “It’s time for new leaders in Washington who know how to build consensus and solve problems. In Congress, I’ll fight to end the bickering and dysfunction and create more opportunities for Iowa families.
