MARION, Iowa – Ashley Hinson, the Republican Nominee for Congress in Iowa’s First Congressional District, announced the endorsement of more than 75 farmers from across all 20 counties in the district.  Iowa Agriculture Secretary Mike Naig will chair Farmers for Ashley and lead this effort.  Members of Farmers for Ashley will serve in an advisory role to Hinson. They will provide regular policy counsel and recommendations that guide her decision making. 

“When I go to Washington, I will continue to be a friend of agriculture just like I have been in Des Moines. I will lean on these folks for advice and counsel during the campaign, but more importantly, when I am elected to Congress,” said Hinson. “Iowa’s farmers feed the world and fuel our economic engine. Congresswoman Finkenauer considers the Green New Deal to be a ‘creative solution’, when it would put Iowa’s farmers out of business.  We must enact policy that grows and protects Iowa’s agricultural industry,” Hinson said.

Naig explained why he supports Hinson in Iowa’s 1st Congressional District race.

“I’m proud to be on Ashley Hinson’s team,” he said. “We need a strong voice in Washington representing the diverse agriculture in Iowa’s first district. When I speak with farmers and rural businesses across the district it’s clear Hinson is the leader they believe will best represent them and Iowa’s rural economy.”

Doug Reimer, a farmer in Clayton County, shared why he supports Hinson.

“Ashley understands the importance of rural Iowa and cares deeply about our farmers. She is everywhere and most importantly, she listens.  I’m proud to have been a day one supporter and am going to continue doing everything I can to deliver her a big victory in Clayton County,” he said.
