Ashley Hinson Announces County Chairs across Iowa 01

Marion, IA – Ashley Hinson, Republican candidate for Congress in Iowa’s 1st district, is proud to announce her campaign’s county chairs. The county chairs will play an important leadership role as Hinson for Congress continues to organize and mobilize volunteers across Iowa 01. Hinson for Congress has previously announced legislative endorsements and a grassroots army of more than 450 volunteers over the past month. Ashley now has more than 500 volunteers engaged on the campaign resulting in more than 60,000 volunteer phone calls.

“Our campaign’s biggest strength is the people who actively support it,” said Hinson. “We continue to build a massive grassroots effort to spread our message of sending Iowa commonsense to Washington in every town and county in the 1st district. I will continue to work every day to recruit new volunteers and coalition members to our team from every walk of life.”

“Ashley Hinson is an Iowan.  She has spent more than a decade working, living and raising her family in Linn County.  From her time on KCRG, to her service as a state representative, she has been deeply committed to doing everything she can to help our community.  I’m proud to be on Team Hinson and working with Ashley to send a servant leader to Washington on our behalf.” – Linn County Chair, Kathy Pearson

“Ashley understands the importance of rural Iowa and cares deeply about our farmers. She is everywhere and most importantly, she listens.  I’m proud to have been a day one supporter and am going to continue doing everything I can to deliver her a big victory in Clayton County.” – Clayton County Chair, Doug Reimer.

“As a small business owner and farmer, I appreciate Ashley’s no nonsense appeal and how she works with all of her constituents in her district and doesn’t just follow the party line.  She takes time to listen, ask questions, and provide actions for those she represents.  She is a public servant in the truest sense.  It’s why I have decided to support her in her bid to be the representative for all of Iowa’s 1st District.” – Jackson County Chair, Monica McHugh
