Wish I had better news, John

J.D. Scholten for Congress John -- Well, the count is finalizing, and it's not in our favor. A few minutes ago, I reached out to my opponent and conceded. But I wanted to let you know how incredibly grateful and proud I am to have fought for change alongside you. Coming up short is…

Last call

J.D. Scholten for Congress Hey John, So, this is it. Polls close in Iowa at 9 p.m. CT. So, we've got about 5 hours left until the outcome of this race is out of our control. But before I ask for your help one last time, I wanted to tell you that I'm so proud of what we've accomplis…

There's still time to fix this -- but not much

J.D. Scholten for Congress John -- We're in big trouble. Election Day is TOMORROW and our digital ads are about to come down TONIGHT. Right now, undecided voters are googling candidates, checking out Facebook, and reading local news sites to find out who they're voting for at the l…

They've said this race is "too tough"

J.D. Scholten for Congress John, Do you know what I mean when I say we can shock the world? The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee thinks this race is too tough, so when they got cold feet, J.D. told them we didn't need them. The GOP elite thinks our race is an easy win f…

J.D. Scholten for Congress Hey, Folks, we're heading into the 9th inning. We have less than twelve hours until our final end-of-month goal, so we need our best supporters to step up to the plate and help us raise $5,031 and knock this out of the park. Your donations help us get ou…

Tough talk for a guy who's letting corporations bleed Iowa dry

J.D. Scholten for Congress John -- There's something you should see from last week's debate. After dodging J.D. for months, Randy Feenstra finally agreed to just one debate. The moderators allowed J.D. to ask Feenstra one question, and it was a straightforward one: How can you rep…

J.D.'s 5️⃣ promises

J.D. Scholten for Congress Have you seen J.D.'s baseball card? On the back, there’s J.D.'s 5 promises to Iowans. Take a look real quick:   We gave out thousands of these cards to voters, not because we think they're so cool (but they are), but because we wanted people to k…

Ted Cruz is in Iowa, and his positions will devastate our economy

J.D. Scholten for Congress Hey, John -- Today Randy Feenstra is campaigning with Ted Cruz in the final days of the election. I'll explain just why that's so worrying in a moment, but could you help us keep up with Feenstra's establishment money with a donation of $10 right now? Fou…

Does this look right?

J.D. Scholten for Congress John, this is the very last fundraising goal of the general election. If we don't raise the last $16,402 we need, the latest poll showing J.D. in a statistical tie doesn't mean a thing -- because we won't have the funds we need to capitalize on our momentu…

People are voting RIGHT NOW

J.D. Scholten for Congress John -- While Randy Feenstra has been hiding behind closed doors, he has spread non-stop lies about J.D. Our campaign doesn't operate like that— in fact, J.D. is running for Congress because he’s sick and tired of politics as usual. J.D. gets out to the p…

Don't let Feenstra’s PAC donors win

46% from PACs and special interests

J.D. Scholten for Congress Hey John, Wow. That's all I have to say after looking at Randy Feenstra's latest fundraising report. 46% of his total comes from PACs and corporate special interests. This is just the beginning of what we could expect from Randy if he's elected: the inter…
