Nicole Hasso, Republican candidate for IA03, today responded to ethics complaints filed against Cindy Axne for failing to report stock trades from 2019-2020.
“As a certified, accredited financial professional, I take the laws and regulations surrounding financial disclosures very seriously. I worked very hard to ensure my knowledge and certification was kept up to date and remained in compliance with current state and federal law. This was the expectation and requirement of my employer. Simply put, if I failed to meet the legal requirements of my job, it was the right of my employer to terminate my employment. As the Republican candidate for IA03, I am here to terminate Cindy Axne’s employment. Her decision to ignore a legal requirement of her job is reason enough to terminate. However, Axne has time and time again failed to represent Iowans.”
Nicole Hasso, a conservative Republican, announced in June she will seek to challenge incumbent Democrat Cindy Axne in the election in Iowa’s 3rd Congressional District.
U.S. Senator Ted Cruz endorsed Hasso as the conservative, outsider in the race.
