“Ashley Hinson is going to be hired by Iowans this Tuesday and Iowans are going to fire Abby Finkenauer because of her failed liberal record. It’s clear, as this polling indicates, that Congresswoman Finkenauer’s strategy of hiding from voters, and skipping debates is backfiring in a big way. Ashley continues to campaign across the district and accept every interview. The message for our supporters is clear: encourage your friends and family who may be undecided in this race to vote for Ashley, and she’s going to win big on Tuesday.” – Jimmy Peacock, Campaign Manager, Ashley Hinson for Congress
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.
Ashley has a record of winning tight 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 despite Democratic outside groups outspending Republican outside groups.
