DES MOINES, Iowa -- Republican Party of Iowa Chairman Jeff Kaufmann released the following statement declaring Ashley Hinson the clear winner of tonight’s first district debate:
“Tonight, Ashley Hinson made it clear she is ready to begin working for Iowans and putting their priorities first on day one -- supporting policies that allow hard-working families to keep more of their tax dollars, opening markets for farmers with more free and fair trade deals, and backing the men and women who keep our communities safe.
“Meanwhile, Rep. Finkenauer used her time at the podium to repeat more of the same tired talking points that Nancy Pelosi and career politicians have been using for years. It’s clear that Finkenauer has been absorbed by the D.C. Swamp -- proposals like the Green New Deal and a public option are failed and dangerous ideas that have no place in Iowa. It’s time to send Ashley to Washington to fight against the radical Left and stand up for Iowans.”
