David Young released his first ad in the Iowa 3rd Congressional District primary race on Monday. In the ad, Young states that despite President Obama promising us hope, he has instead “ripped apart our economy, shredded our healthcare system, and crumbled our national security.” At the end of the ad, Young transforms the bumper sticker […]
