RPI Statement on Third Congressional District Debate

Republican Party of Iowa Chairman Jeff Kaufmann released the following statement after the conclusion of the Third Congressional District Debate tonight:

“Tonight, voters in Southwest Iowa heard a clear difference in the race for Congress. On one hand, Iowans heard about David Young’s experience and his proven record of solutions. Whether it’s his vote to lower the tax burden for nearly every Iowan, his legislation that has protected our agricultural economy, or his leadership in defending those that have defended America, David Young is the only candidate who will answer to his real bosses, the constituents.

“On the other hand, Cindy Axne solidified her position as the handpicked candidate of Nancy Pelosi and the DC Democrats who have long forgotten about Southwest Iowa. Axne is becoming just as out of step with Iowans as the Democrats who are bankrolling her campaign from afar. Axne’s anti-ag and tax-hiking agenda are the exact far-left policies that Southwest Iowa families can’t afford. David Young was the clear winner tonight and is the only candidate who is committed to his district, not to DC.”
