“I am proud of to have the support of my colleagues in the Iowa Legislature. It is an honor to serve my constituents in Des Moines and to have the confidence of those I’ve served alongside with means a great deal to me” said Hinson. “I look forward to taking the experience I have as a legislator in Des Moines to Washington. My colleagues endorsing me today know the seriousness with which I take the responsibility of serving in public office and I look forward to having them serve active roles in my campaign.” – State Representative Ashley Hinson
“Ashley Hinson is a dedicated public servant and the exact right candidate to take back Iowa’s First Congressional District. She is running to do something, not be someone. She is a proven conservative, a proven winner, and an extraordinary communicator. I look forward to doing everything I can to support her candidacy. Let’s. Go. Win.” – Iowa Senate Majority Leader Jack Whitver
“While Ashley’s leadership is going to be missed under the dome in Des Moines, there is no doubt that our loss is going to be Washington’s gain. Since joining us in 2016, Ashley has proven to be a serious and capable legislator with a genuine passion for serving her constituents. I am all in for Ashley’s candidacy to represent Iowa’s First District in Congress and am thrilled to be a part of Team Hinson.” – Speaker of the Iowa House Pat Grassley
“Ashley Hinson’s leadership is desperately needed in Washington, DC. As a legislator, she’s built a reputation for building consensus and solving problems for her constituents. Ashley will always put people above politics. She is the right leader for Eastern Iowa and I am thrilled to support her candidacy to be Iowa 01’s next Congresswoman.” – Iowa State Senator Carrie Koelker.

Since launching her campaign, Ashley has been recognized as one of the strongest House candidates in the country. Ashley was recently announced as a ‘contender’ by the National Republican Congressional Committee. She has been endorsed by top Republicans in Washington D.C. and Iowa including Governor Kim Reynolds and Lt. Governor Adam Gregg. Some of her key financial supporters include Ernst Victory Iowa PAC (Sen. Joni Ernst), Majority Committee PAC (Leader Kevin McCarthy), Eye of the Tiger PAC (Rep. Steve Scalise), Cowboy PAC (Rep. Liz Cheney) and E-PAC (Rep. Elise Stefanik).
National political forecasters believe the 1st congressional district will be one of the most competitive races in 2020. The Cook Political Report has rated IA-01 as “Toss Up”.
A former news anchor and current representative for House District 67, Ashley has a record of winning tough elections. She won in 2018 in a swing district to help hold the Iowa House majority and outperformed the Republican ticket by 5-8 points across House District 67, the heart of IA-01. She won 9 of 13 precincts in House District 67 in spite of Democratic outside groups outspending Republican outside groups.
