Des Moines, IA – State senator Zach Nunn, a candidate for Iowa’s 3rd congressional district and U.S. Air Force combat veteran, today announced that his campaign officially qualified for the ballot in Iowa’s Third Congressional District.
Nunn for Congress turned in certified signatures from Iowans in all 21 counties, showing Nunn’s vast grassroots network, support from rural and suburban areas, and unified backing across the entire district.
“It’s been an honor to serve Iowans in the state Legislature. Whether it was delivering the largest tax cut in Iowa’s history or protecting our Constitutional rights at every opportunity – I have a proven track record of delivering results and representing both rural Iowa and Polk County. But I’m not done working for Iowans,” said Zach Nunn. “My next mission is taking our Iowa values to D.C., because I’m worried about the burdensome tax hikes and big government regulations that Rep. Cindy Axne is pushing on Iowans. Farmers are struggling from inflation, our neighborhoods are seeing increasing crime and our country is suffering from Democrat’s tax-and-spend agendas. Enough is enough. Join our team today to take back the U.S. House and stop the Democrat’s federal mandates, rules, and spending!”
Nunn has been endorsed by leaders in U.S. Congress, nationwide veteran coalitions, state legislative leaders and top grassroots activists. He also secured a spot on the National Republican Congressional Committee’s coveted “Young Guns” radar program, meeting the laudable fundraising and campaign requirements that identify the top U.S. House recruits for 2022.
“I’m proud to be on Zach Nunn’s team. He’s demonstrated his commitment to both rural Iowa & Polk County by being the only candidate to visit all 21 counties of the new IA-03,” said Will Rogers. “He’s the only candidate who can take on Cindy Axne and win. We’ve had enough of her elitist mindset and out of touch policies. In the upcoming June primary, remember one thing: Zach Nunn gets it done!”
