DES MOINES, Iowa – Iowa’s Senior U.S. Senator Chuck Grassley endorsed former U.S. Rep. David Young for the 2020 Republican primary in Iowa’s 3rd Congressional District.

Young who served two terms in Congress from 2015 to 2019, served as Grassley’s chief of staff. Young was defeated in his bid for a third term by U.S. Rep. Cindy Axne, D-Iowa, who announced she will run for re-election.

Young announced his candidacy earlier this month and faces a contested primary in 2020. Army veteran Bill Schafer announced his candidacy and State Sen. Zach Nunn, R-Bondurant, who currently is on a listening tour in the district is expected to join the field.

“There’s nobody better positioned to do more for Iowans in the Third Congressional District than David Young. He has already served Iowans with dedication in the district for two terms, making their concerns his top priority, from Pottawattamie to Polk counties and every county in between,” Grassley said.

“An effective leader, David will be able to again hit the ground running immediately like he did when he was first elected to Congress. And before that he worked side by side with me as my Chief of Staff, delivering for Iowans every day of the week. So he knows how to get things done.

“Iowans in the Third Congressional District know they can count on David. He puts their interests over partisan politics. I am proud to endorse David. We need David back in Congress,” he added.

“I am honored to have the endorsement of Sen. Grassley.  He’s a good friend and great leader for Iowa and I’m humbled to have his support in this important race,” Young said in a released statement.
