DES MOINES, Iowa -- With a strong record of standing up for Iowa farmers in the third district, David Young secured the endorsement of the Iowa Farm Bureau -- Iowa's largest grassroots farmer organization.

In Congress, Young fought against the Waters of the U.S. (WOTUS) Rule, helped secure E-15 year round, and passed legislation to improve call quality in rural areas.

His opponent, Rep. Cindy Axne, was rightfully snubbed of the endorsement. While she made empty promises on the campaign trail, Axne went to Congress and immediately turned her back on Iowa farmers. Instead, she made it clear she will tow the party line and bow to the coastal liberals bankrolling her campaign:

  • This summer, Axne announced her support for the House’s “climate solutions” proposal which aims to ban gas cars in 15 years, which would devastate the ethanol industry

  • She has been endorsed by two radical environmental groups, the Sierra Club and the League of Conservation Voters. Both support anti-ag policies that align with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s $93 trillion Green New Deal. The Sierra Club openly opposes “incentives for the production of corn-based ethanol,” and believes in “minimizing the production and consumption of domestic animals.”

  • Axne supports the Obama-Biden era WOTUS rule, which would’ve regulated 97 percent of land in Iowa

  • She wants to repeal the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, which would raise taxes on the middle class and put in place a harmful estate tax that would destroy family farms

"It's clear Rep. Axne was engulfed by the Swamp as soon as she got to Washington, leaving the priorities of rural Iowans behind," said Aaron Britt, Communications Director for the Republican Party of Iowa. "Axne's support for burdensome regulations and tax policies that are harmful to farmers in southwest Iowa tells voters everything they need to know: They can't trust Axne to have their backs."
