Zach Nunn, a combat veteran, today announced his candidacy for the United States House of Representatives. In his announcement video, Zach highlights his mission to continue serving Iowa by fighting for our communities, bringing Iowa values to Washington, and building on successes at the Iowa Statehouse to defend Constitutional rights, grow the economy, cut taxes for working Iowans, and support family farms.
“I’m a proven fighter for Iowa – both on the battlefield and in our state capitol. I am honored to serve in the U.S. Air Force, defending our liberties and safeguarding our rights. I delivered results in the Statehouse leading Iowa’s largest tax cuts, supporting the military and Second Amendment, and making dedicated investments in education, health care, and mental wellness. My military and public service taught me how to lead and to never give up in face of a challenge. My next mission is to bring Iowa’s record of success to the nation’s capital. I’ll fight for Iowa as I always have; and I’ll defeat the far-left’s socialist agenda in the process,” Nunn said.
As a combat aviator in the United States Air Force, Zach deployed three times to the Middle East after 9/11. Flying over 700 combat hours, and Zach received numerous Defense decorations for saving US Forces ambushed by Taliban insurgents, executing special operations, and leading COVID-19 recovery efforts with the Iowa Air National Guard. Zach served on the White House’s National Security Council combatting cyber threats, and later commanded expeditionary forces under the Trump administration. Zach went on to be elected to the Iowa Senate and House of Representatives.
Zach and his family are sixth-generation Iowans – a family of teachers, nurses, and century farmers. Zach and his wife Kelly are both from Iowa and are raising four young children. Together, Kelly and Zach own and operate a small business serving the community.
Will Rogers, past-Polk County GOP Chairman hailed Nunn’s announcement, “Zach is a workhorse who leads with both Republicans, Democrats and Independents. He wins elections in hard races. In his first legislative race in Polk County, he took on an incumbent and won a Blue district by 13-percentage points. Two years later he won by 25-points. He won his first Senate race by nearly five thousand votes, beating Democrats in a seat they held for over 60 years.”
In the announcement video, Nunn highlights his mission to bring Iowa values to Washington and deliver results to Iowans by
- Defending our constitutional rights, protecting our First and Second Amendment and putting a stop to cancel culture and any DC politician who tries to tell us how to act or how to defend ourselves.
- Strengthening our economy, getting Iowans back to work, and stopping trillion-dollar wasteful government spending, high taxes and partisan handouts.
- Supporting public safety, law enforcement, military and border patrol.
