U.S. Rep. Abby Finkenauer, D-Dubuque, and State Rep. Ashley Hinson, R-Marion

MARION, Iowa – State Rep. Ashley Hinson, R-Marion, reported raising more than $1,600,000 in the third quarter and reported over $725,000 cash on hand. This is the second quarter in a row Ashley Hinson has outraised incumbent U.S. Rep. Abby Finkenauer. Finkenauer, late Thursday, reported raising $1,447,255.63, falling short of Hinson’s third quarter by over $150,000. Finkenauer reported $619,366 cash on hand.
 
“Ashley Hinson is in a strong position to win this race. It’s abundantly clear that Ashley has the momentum, and Iowans are tired of Abby Finkenauer’s constant political gamesmanship. With less than a month till the election, our campaign has the resources needed to tell our story. While Abby hides, Ashley is campaigning relentlessly to get over the finish line,” Jimmy Peacock, Hinson’s campaign manager, said.
 
Hinson is in the highest tier of the ‘Young Gun Program’ by the National Republican Congressional Committee after establishing her clear path to victory. National political forecasters believe Iowa’s 1st Congressional District will be one of the most competitive races in 2020.
 
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 Iowa House District 67. She won 9 of 13 precincts in House District 67 in spite of Democratic outside groups outspending Republican outside groups.
