On Friday, candidate Zach Nunn released the following statement over Representative Cindy Axne’s (D-IA) decision to run for re-election in Iowa’s newly drawn Third Congressional District.
“I’ve been working proudly for Iowans in the State Senate by lowering taxes, protecting our freedoms, and prioritizing our economy and parent’s rights in education,” said Zach Nunn. “I’ve already started a district-wide ‘Full Grassley’, visiting every county in the new district, and a vast majority of Iowans disapprove of the far-left agenda that Axne votes for.”
Nunn continued, saying “There are real issues that aren’t being addressed: high inflation, high gas and grocery prices, and attacks on individual freedoms, so I’m laser-focused on the general election next November. First Axne considered running for US Senate, then Governor, and finally settled on running for re-election in IA-03. Clearly, there is concern she wouldn’t be able to win due to the fact she’s voted with Pelosi 96% of the time and is out of touch with the majority of Iowans. Let’s not forget, last election Axne lost every county but Polk, and the new 3rd District is now clearly more favorable for Republicans.”
IA-03 is now a highly competitive seat for Republicans after the new district lines were drawn. Democrats and Republicans are both targeting this seat to determine the majority in the U.S. House. Zach was recently named to the National Republican Congressional Committee’s (NRCC) Young Guns program, which determines the top U.S. House recruits nationally.
