Wow, what a great night for the State of Iowa! President Trump, Senator Joni Ernst and Rep. Ashely Hinson! We are very disappointed that our local candidates didn't make it, but wow, 3 of them came so close! Harold Youngblut lost to Giddens by only 3%, Ryan Howard lost to Williams by only 2.5 % and Brent Dunlop lost to Schwartz by only .6 %.
Youngblut had NO help from the state party, but worked hard and look at the results! Howard had a little help but could have really done it with a little more! Brent Dunlop didn't even start until late July and look how close he came!
We had over 75 NEW volunteers help us with absentee ballot chase and poll watching! Great year for us! See some of the Election night party photos!

Haters will always hate! More Trump Barn signs are being vandalized and yard signs stolen! They are a precious commodity, if you have one, protect by putting it up close to your home or bringing it at night! The press doesn't seem interested in reporting any of it, but you can bet if it were Biden signs being vandalized there would be an investigation.
