As we enter the 2022 midterm election season, Iowans are starting to vet candidates. As you do so, I want to introduce you to Liz Mathis. She’s a liberal, and her voting record in the Iowa Legislature reflects that. From voting against bipartisan tax cuts for working families and embracing Democrats like Elizabeth Warren, she is far too liberal to represent Iowa. She would vote in lockstep with Nancy Pelosi to further Joe Biden’s failed agenda.
State Sen. Mathis voted against the largest bipartisan income tax cut for Iowans in the history of our state. With prices getting higher by the day and families struggling to pay bills, Iowans need a relentless fighter in Washington who will make sure you keep more of your hard-earned money.
When Gov. Kim Reynolds was working to safely lift COVID restrictions, Mathis tweeted “This pisses me off.” She voted to keep students learning behind a screen instead of allowing our kids to go back to class, where we know they learn best.
With a mandate-happy Biden Administration, we need someone who stands up for our freedoms, not someone who supports tossing them to the side.
Sen. Mathis doesn’t think you should have to show your ID to vote. She voted against Iowa’s election integrity laws. And in Washington, she would join Pelosi and Biden’s effort to remove voter ID requirements nationwide and give the federal government control over Iowa’s elections by supporting H.R. 1 and H.R. 4, just like Rep. Cindy Axne did.
Liz Mathis doesn’t stand with the brave men and women in law enforcement. She voted against imposing tougher penalties on those who assault police officers during protests and riots. Crime is spiking across the country, as are targeted attacks against law enforcement. Now, more than ever, our police officers need leaders who have their back.
If Liz Mathis is elected to Congress, she’ll do just what Nancy Pelosi tells her to do. And based on her record, Pelosi won’t have to try very hard to get Liz to support tax hikes, wasteful spending, and other radical policies that will hurt Iowans.
There is too much at stake in this election: higher taxes, our God-given freedoms, and security for our nation. Pelosi and Biden want to take our country down the road to socialism, and Liz Mathis will help them do it.
In Washington, Rep. Ashley Hinson has been Nancy Pelosi’s worst nightmare. She is a trusted conservative and fiscal hawk who has stood up against the left and delivers for Iowans every single day as our Congresswoman. Ashley Hinson is the leader we need in Congress, and it’s why voters in Iowa will reject a bona fide liberal in Liz Mathis.
State Sen. Dan Zumbach is a Republican from Ryan.
