David Young, Republican candidate for Iowa’s Third Congressional District, was today named as a first-round “Contender” candidate by the National Republican Congressional Committee.

The program recognizes Republican House candidates across the country who have the plans and organizations in place to win crucial races to return Republican control to the U.S. House of Representatives.

“I am honored to be recognized by the NRCC with their ‘Contender’ status,” Young said. “But more so, I’m honored to have the grassroots, activists, and donor community support here in Iowa who have donated their valuable time, energy, and hard-earned money to put us in a position to win.”

The full press release from the NRCC can be found here.

David Young was elected to serve the Third Congressional District in the U.S. House of Representatives in 2014 and reelected in 2016. Prior to his service in Congress, Young served Iowans as U.S. Senator Chuck Grassley’s Chief of Staff from 2006-2013. A graduate of Johnston High School and Drake University, Young is a seventh-generation Iowan and resides in Van Meter.
