VAN METER, Iowa – On Thursday morning, David Young, Republican candidate for Congress in Iowa’s 3rd Congressional District, announces the endorsement of Senator¬†Joni Ernst, R-Iowa.
 
‚ÄúSince David and I were elected in 2014, I‚Äôve witnessed first-hand his work ethic and dedication¬†to¬†our neighbors and folks all over the Third District,‚ÄĚ Ernst said.

‚ÄúWe need David back in¬†Congress, fighting for the issues¬†Iowans¬†are concerned about ‚Äď trade, health care, border security, reducing the scope of government and giving the people more freedom to conduct their lives and businesses,¬†and more.¬†As a combat veteran, I appreciate David‚Äôs strong voice and proven record when it comes to caring for our veterans.¬†But, his efforts don‚Äôt stop there.¬† As a sixth generation Iowan, David is also a strong advocate for our¬†rural communities and ag industry¬†and has successfully championed bills that protect our nation‚Äôs food supply and keep our rural communities connected. David is someone who gets things done, and we need more actions like these¬†that lead to results for Iowans,” she added.

‚ÄúSen. Ernst has been on the front line in the Senate fighting for Iowans since she was sworn in, and it is an honor to receive her endorsement.
