RPI Statement on the Third Congressional District Debate
DES MOINES, Iowa -- Republican Party of Iowa Chairman Jeff Kaufmann released the following statement declaring David Young the winner of tonight’s third district debate:
“After four debates, David Young has clearly demonstrated he is the only candidate in this race who will effectively serve the people of the third district. David shows up every day for every constituent -- from small business owners and farmers, to veterans and health care workers. He has fought to protect those with pre-existing conditions, secured mental health resources, and cut taxes, which allowed Iowans to keep more of their hard-earned money and led to economic growth. With David Young on the job, the third congressional district will always have a voice in Washington.
“Rep. Cindy Axne continues to push for a radical government takeover of southwest Iowa, handing the keys of the district over to Jamie Raskin and Nancy Pelosi to pass their socialist agenda. Axne’s party bosses and coastal donors know they can count on her to raise taxes and pass the Green New Deal, which will eliminate jobs and opportunities for Iowans. The third district will vote to make Axne a one-term congresswoman.”
