DCCC Chairman Steve Israel Statement on Republican Convention in IA-03

DCCC Chairman Steve Israel released the following statement after Washington insider David Young cut a backroom deal in order to win the convention:

“Voters in Iowa now have a clear choice between Staci Appel, who will continue fighting for middle class priorities like equal pay for equal work and would be Iowa’s first woman elected to Congress, and David Young, who is so out of touch about retirement security that he would raise the retirement age for hardworking Iowans who depend on their hard-earned Social Security and Medicare.”

Background on IA-03:

  • President Obama won a majority of the vote in the district in 2008 (53.1 percent) and 2012 (52.2 percent)
  • The Cook Report’s Partisan Voting Index (PVI) score for the district is EVEN.
