Ashley Hinson Raises $315,000 in Third Quarter
Marion, IA – Ashley Hinson, Republican candidate for Congress in Iowa’s 1st District, raised more than $315,000 in the third quarter building on the $335,000 she raised the second quarter. 83% percent of her support came from donors in Iowa. The campaign will report over $492,000 cash on hand.
“The momentum for our campaign to bring Iowa common sense to Washington continues to grow,” said Hinson. “It’s clear that voters across the first district are ready to put people before politics and end the bickering and dysfunction in Washington.”
“Ashley’s excellent fundraising is no surprise to those on the ground in Eastern Iowa,” said Hinson campaign manager Jimmy Peacock. “Ashley’s message, combined with her hard work meeting Iowans is attracting the financial support necessary to win this district in 2020.”
Since launching her campaign, Ashley Hinson has established herself as one of the strongest house candidates in the country. National political forecasters believe the first congressional district will be one of the most competitive races in 2020. The Cook Political Report has rated IA-01 as “Toss Up”.
Hinson’s financial supporters include Ernst Victory Iowa PAC (Sen. Joni Ernst), Majority Committee PAC (Leader Kevin McCarthy), E-PAC (Rep. Elise Stefanik), CMR PAC (Rep. Cathy McMorris-Rodgers), Susan PAC (Rep. Susan Brooks), Cut the Bull PAC (Rep. Carol Miller), and VIEW PAC.
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.
An Iowa native, Ashley is the first woman to represent Iowa’s 67th House District, which covers Hiawatha Robins, Cedar Rapids and Marion. Prior to serving in the Iowa House, Ashley was an award-winning reporter for KCRG-TV9 in Cedar Rapids. Ashley currently lives in Marion with her husband Matt and their two sons.
