VAN METER, Iowa – On Monday,David Young launched his campaign for Iowa’s 3rd Congressional District. Young was elected to represent Iowa’s 3rd Congressional District in 2014 and reelected in 2016, but lost his bid for a third term to Cindy Axne in 2018.

“I was born and raised in Iowa’s 3rd Congressional District, so this mission is personal to me and so many others I visit with and hear from in the district’s 16 counties,” said Young.

While in Congress, Young frequently traveled the district visiting with Iowans in every county he served.

“The residents of the 3rd District deserve better than the partisan politics overshadowing and taking precedence over the priorities of Iowans in Congress right now. Since January, hard-working Iowans have been left behind by Cindy Axne while she’s voted to reward herself with Iowans’ taxpayer dollars to fund her personal political campaign and breaking promises. The policies advocated by Cindy Axne and Speaker Nancy Pelosi in this current Congress are harming Iowa’s families by hurting our economy and rights. Iowans deserve better from their current representative. This is why today I am announcing my candidacy for Congress,” said Young. 

Young is a graduate of Johnston High School and Drake University and is a resident of Van Meter where he grew up. Prior to serving in Congress, Young served Iowans as the Chief of Staff for U.S. Sen. Chuck Grassley.
