ICYMI: Cindy Axne Invested in Companies that Contaminated Water

Liberal Cindy Axne claims to care about the environment, and she’s received endorsements from far-left environmental groups including the Sierra Club and League of Conservation Voters. But the lid has now been blown off and the truth is out there about her record: Axne's been profiting off companies with multiple environmental violations.  Before making their endorsement, perhaps these environmental groups should have dug deeper into Axne’s record rather than merely accepting her DC talking points. Will they take a closer look and rescind their endorsement? ...

Hubbell’s Full Blown Panic On Younkers

Fred Hubbell’s on defense - again. Hubbell released his second TV ad today attempting to defend his record at Younkers - an ad that includes a misleading claim and backtracks on his campaign’s previous statements.

Absent Abby: An Avowed Partisan

Abby Finkenauer’s out with a new ad that’s DCCC tested, DCCC approved. While that’s not surprising, what is startling is just how much her ad files in the face of her own voting record. Finkenauer would like Eastern Iowans to forget just how partisan her record has been - and how she would do the same alongside Nancy Pelosi in Congress. “Voters won’t be fooled by Abby Finkenauer, who’s just another far left liberal trying to follow in the footsteps of the failed partisan Democrats before her,” said Jesse Dougherty, Communications Director for the Republi...

#AbsentAbby Refuses to Be Upfront With Voters

Abby Finkenauer hasn’t been focused on the voters of Eastern Iowa: the bulk of her fundraising is from money outside the state, she’s missed some key grassroots forums, and continues to focus on her national profile. What about the district she’s running in? When it comes to being upfront with voters, Finkenauer is often nowhere to be found. During his recent visit to IA-01, President Trump talked about the leadership that Rod Blum has brought to Eastern Iowa, including his work to secure flood protection money for Cedar Rapids. But President Trump also asked ...

Deidre Dejear: A Stamp for the Failed Liberal Agenda of the Past

Des Moines Liberal Deidre Dejear is building her campaign around far left special interests, including NARAL Pro-Choice America, EMILY’s List, and Our Revolution. But the latest liberal seal of approval tops them all: Dejear just received a $5,000 donation from Hillary Clinton and an endorsement from former President Obama. Clinton - the same failed candidate that lost Iowa by over 9 points, and the worst performing Democrat in rural America for the last five elections, maxed out to Dejear’s candidacy. This move follows the pattern of Dejear standing against the ...
