Congresswoman Ashley Hinson (IA-01) released the following statement on Rita Hart ending her effort to challenge the state-certified election results in IA-02.
“Iowans elected Congresswoman Miller-Meeks to represent them in Congress and Rita Hart’s eventual decision to respect the will of Iowa voters is the right one. I look forward to continuing to serve Iowans alongside Congresswoman Miller-Meeks. This process was just a glimpse into how our elections would operate under H.R. 1—Democrats’ bill to take away states’ Constitutional authority to run their own elections and place this power in D.C. We must ensure people feel confident their votes count while illegal ones do not—and that means respecting each state’s right to run its own election system without federal interference.” –Congresswoman Ashley Hinson
