Finkenauer has worked to deserve another term

I continue to be surprised when elected officials don’t work. Our Republican congressional leadership and administration seem to have given up on us in Iowa. The ongoing pain of COVID, economic and human, is ignored as small businesses struggle and the virus spreads.

Meanwhile, in the wake of the tragic loss of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Republicans finally bolted into action. They are spending their time before the election solely on the selection of RBG’s replacement, but where was this quick action and will to legislate when they were debating the next COVID-19 relief bill?! Former TV personality and State Rep. Ashley Hinson wants to be our congresswoman but she is silent on Iowa’s pain.

U.S. Rep. Abby Finkenauer is firm in her commitment to us and her promise to getting things done. Her biggest priority in Congress is to get results for Iowa, and it’s why she is constantly working across party lines. In just two years, she’s introduced 20 bipartisan bills, passed legislation to support our small businesses, and fought against ethanol waivers that hurt our farmers.

I’m voting to re-elect Congresswoman Finkenauer because I need someone who is constantly working for Iowa, not someone who decides to act only when single-issue interests and donors demand it.
