Iowa Republican ousted in 2018 says he will run to reclaim House seat

Former GOP Rep. David Young (Iowa) said Monday that he is launching a campaign against the Democrat who unseated him during the 2018 midterm elections.

“I spent a lot of time with folks around the 3rd District, listening to their priorities and listening to their voices, and they are not being heard right now in the U.S. Congress,” Young told The Des Moines Register, referencing Rep. Cindy Axne (D-Iowa).

“The policies that Cindy Axne is putting forward with Nancy Pelosi is not what Iowans are talking about or wanting,” he added.

Young, who served in Congress between 2014 and 2019, told the newspaper that Axne had a poor voting record and that he was eager to begin campaigning against her.
