Marion, IA – Ashley Hinson, the Republican candidate for Congress in Iowa’s First Congressional district, raised over $1.6 million in the third quarter and will report more than $725,000 cash on hand. After raising over $1 million in quarter two, Hinson’s campaign is heading into the last 30 days with strong momentum, and the resources needed to be able to hold Congresswoman Finkenauer accountable to her liberal record.
“I am humbled by the outpouring of financial support for our campaign. Iowans have made it clear that they are sick and tired of the chaos and dysfunction going on in Washington. Voters know that I will never be too politically correct to tell them where I stand on the issues, and in Congress, I will work across the aisle to deliver solutions for Iowans. –Ashley Hinson
“Ashley’s strong work ethic and bipartisan record is resonating with the voters in Iowa’s First Congressional District. It’s clear that Iowans are ready to hire Ashley this November because they know she will go to bat for them in Congress.” – Jimmy Peacock, Campaign Manager
Ashley is in the highest tier of the ‘Young Gun Program’ by the National Republican Congressional Committee after establishing her clear path to victory. National political forecasters believe the 1st Congressional District will be one of the most competitive races in 2020.
