MARION, Iowa – State Rep. Ashley Hinson, R-Marion, the Republican nominee for Congress in Iowa’s 1st Congressional District race, released her sixth television ad titled “Transportation.” The ad will air across the district. In the Iowa State House, Ashley Hinson chaired the Transportation Committee and worked across the aisle to fight for more money for roads and bridges in Iowa.
“I decided to leave journalism because I got tired of talking about problems and instead wanted to work on solving those problems. As transportation chair, we were able to pass 20 bills out of our committee that were bipartisan bills. Especially right now, when you talk about all of the chaos and dysfunction in Washington D.C., and not being able to get things done, we got things done in a bipartisan way, and that’s exactly how it should be,” Hinson said in the ad.
She 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 tight 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 her district despite Democratic outside groups outspending Republican outside groups.
