MARION, Iowa – On Thursday, State Rep. Ashley Hinson, Republican candidate for Congress in Iowa’s 1st Congressional District, announced the support of more than 450 grassroots leaders from all of the district’s 20 counties.  “Ashley’s Army” will serve as Hinson’s volunteer operation and network moving forward. 

“Today is a special one for our campaign as Team Hinson continues to grow.  Our campaign will be everywhere and compete in every corner of the district” said Hinson.  “We now have the grassroots team in place to do just that.  I look forward to continuing to grow our volunteer network in the days, weeks and months to come as Iowans come together to send a common sense voice to Washington on their behalf.”

The list of the “first wave” of grassroots endorsements can be seen here.

Since launching her campaign, Hinson was recently announced as a ‘contender’ by the National Republican Congressional Committee. She has been endorsed by Republicans in Washington D.C. and Iowa including Governor Kim Reynolds and Lt. Governor Adam Gregg. Some of her key financial supporters include Ernst Victory Iowa PAC (U.S. Sen. Joni Ernst), Majority Committee PAC (House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy), Eye of the Tiger PAC (U.S. Rep. Steve Scalise), Cowboy PAC (U.S.Rep. Liz Cheney) and E-PAC (U.S. Rep. Elise Stefanik).

National political forecasters believe Iowa’s 1st Congressional district will be one of the most competitive races in 2020. The Cook Political Report has rated the race as “Toss Up”.

A former news anchor and current representative for Iowa House District 67, Hinson has a record of winning tough 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 the district. She won 9 of 13 precincts in spite of Republicans being outspent by Democrats.
