Nunn for Congress Announces Q1 Fundraising Numbers
Team Nunn raised over $320,000 with support in all 21 counties
Des Moines, IA – Today, Zach Nunn’s campaign for U.S. Congress announced fundraising numbers for the first financial quarter of 2022. The campaign raised over $320,000 in the first quarter of the election year, showing support in all 21 counties of Iowa’s Third Congressional District.
“This campaign is for every Iowan – from farmers in Cass, to professionals in Polk, to working families in Wapello. We have gained support in all 21 counties in the district,” said candidate Zach Nunn. “Winning this seat isn’t just about retiring Rep. Cindy Axne, it’s about taking back the U.S. House. Iowans deserve a government who stays out of their lives and who will put Iowans’ best interests before themselves, which Cindy Axne and Democrats have never done.
“I’m running a campaign to preserve our constitutional rights, prioritize jobs and the economy, protect our communities and families, and defend Iowa values – and I believe that will benefit every Iowan.”
Not only does Nunn have the support of Iowans in every county of IA-03, he has received endorsements from cabinet-level leaders, U.S. members of Congress, nationwide veteran coalitions, state legislative leaders, and top grassroots activists.
