Nicole Hasso announced she is running for the Republican nomination for the United States House of Representatives in Iowa’s Third District. Hasso, who called herself a conservative Republican in her announcement video, said her story is only possible in America.
“Because here where you start does not have to be where you finish,” she said. “But all of that is under attack today.”
She took on the “radical Left” for children being labeled oppressors and victims based on skin color, attacking law enforcement, promoting lawlessness in our communities and on the border.
“House Democrats are pushing higher taxes, more government regulations and a socialist agenda that would harm future generations and destroy Iowa’s economy,” she said.
Hasso said she was never supposed to end up where she is today. She grew up on the south side of Chicago.
“Critical Race Theory says the American Dream isn’t for people who look like me, who come from where I came from,” she said.
Hasso was the first person in her family to graduate high school. She worked in financial services. Now, she’s running for Congress.
“It’s time for Iowa to choose differently, to make our last stand, to defend our freedoms and this great land we love,” she said. “To support our police, to protect innocent life, to defend our right to keep and bear arms, to fight for lower taxes, smaller government and better opportunities for all Americans.”
Former State Rep. Mary Ann Hanusa announced her run for the GOP nomination earlier this year. The district is yet to be redrawn. State Sen. Jake Chapman already announced he will not seek the nomination.
The seat is currently held by Democrat Congresswoman Cindy Axne.
