Republican Nominee for U.S. Congress, Iowa's 1st District
Ashley Hinson was the first woman to represent Iowa’s 67th District in the state House of Representatives. Now, she has her sights on representing Iowans in the state’s 1st Congressional District in the U.S. House of Representatives.
Ashley has worked successfully to balance the budget, cut taxes and protect the most vulnerable in her community. A firm believer in common sense leadership, she has worked across the aisle to help fund school infrastructure while providing direct property tax relief to Iowans. Her tireless advocacy for Iowa families has also helped secure increased aid for K-12 education and additional funding for rural hospitals and mental health facilities.
Prior her tenure in the Iowa House, Ashley was a reporter for KCRG-TV in Cedar Rapids. For more than a decade, she had the opportunity to connect with Iowa’s small business owners and community leaders. Ashley’s extensive reporting on rising health care costs, devastating flooding and other critical issues impacting Eastern Iowa drove her to want to serve her community.
Since launching her campaign, Ashley has established herself as one of the strongest House candidates in the country. National political forecasters believe the 1st congressional district will be one of the most competitive races in 2020.
Active in her community, Ashley belongs to the Antioch Christian Church and is a member of March of Dimes, Young Parents Network and the National Council on Youth Leadership.
Ashley is a member of Five Seasons Republican Women. She and her husband, Matt, have two young sons. Her children drive her every day to fight for a better community and stronger economy for all Iowa families.
