The GOP is spending $150K in IA-01 to lie about Abby

Finkenauer for Iowa         Hey, we know we JUST wrapped up our FEC Q3 fundraising -- and we couldn’t have hit our goal without you, but we have some bad news on the campaign front. The RNC dropped a $150k ad buy in our district, launched a digital attack ad, an…

Thank YOU so much!!

Finkenauer for Iowa         Team -- I’ve got to say thank you. Your individual support is the reason we’re going to have what it takes to fight hard to protect IA-01 in 2020. I was worried about hitting our Q3 fundraising goal, but thanks to hundreds of folks who…

$3,410 more

Hi there -- When Ned wrote you earlier, our Q3 fundraising numbers weren’t looking great. Right now, we’re still $3,410 short of our goal, and we have 5 hours left until midnight to show my potential opponents, GOP strategists, and pundits how powerful this campaign really is.   I ran for Co…

When I read that memo on Abby’s race

Hi there, Ned here -- Abby Finkenauer’s campaign manager in IA-01.   Last week, The Washington Post shared a new report that analyzed all 235 House districts held by Democrats. They considered things like win-margin in 2018, whether Trump won in 2016, and whether the district is a target fo…

We can’t afford to lose IA-01 in 2020

Hi there -- Losing IA-01 in 2020 will surely cost us the House Majority.   Abby Finkenauer is facing direct attacks from national Republicans, and we must defend this seat NOW.   Right wing extremists are actively campaigning against Abby, and tonight is the biggest test of her re-election c…

Hey, could use your help!

HEY -- Reaching out again with an update on our FEC filing goal! Right now, we’re still short, and what we raise before Monday’s deadline will set the tone for the kind of campaign we can run. We’ve got to show the GOP that if they think they’re going to stop me from delivering results for m…

Worried about our families

Hi there -- When I hear about how critical keeping IA-01 blue is to protecting the House majority, I worry about Iowa families.   Every day, I’m working to keep Social Security and Medicaid off the chopping block while fighting to lower the costs of prescription drugs. In 2018, we won this s…

Will you share your thoughts with us now?

Finkenauer for Iowa         Hi there,   In our last survey, hundreds of people told us that healthcare is the most important issue to them -- and we know Abby feels the same.    Her work over the last nine months has proved to us that Abby is committed to expand…

Finkenauer for Iowa         Hey, Ned Miller here. I’m Congresswoman Abby Finkenauer’s campaign manager for her 2020 race for re-election. Trump won IA-01 in 2016, but Abby fought hard to flip this district last November. Now, we have to defend one of the most com…

We fell short

Finkenauer for Iowa         Hi there,   If Abby Finkenauer loses re-election in IA-01, there’s almost NO CHANCE Democrats can hold the House.   This race is “toss-up,” and national Republicans have a right-wing extremist challenger lined up to take Abby on.   Loo…

two weeks

Hey -- We’ve got two weeks until the next FEC deadline, and right now, we’re still $4,750 short of our mid-month goal. I’ll be straight with you, falling short right now is one of the worst things we could do. National Republicans are paying SUPER close attention to our race because they won…

Finding common ground

Finkenauer for Iowa         Hi there,   Growing up, my family and I would go to my grandparents’ house after church -- our whole family, Democrats and Republicans alike, would sit around the kitchen table and talk politics.   Now, we didn’t always agree on the is…

We have to keep our unions strong

Finkenauer for Iowa         Happy Labor Day, team!   Without union laborers, we wouldn’t have a weekend, fair wages and income equality, employer-based health coverage, or family and medical leave. If we want to move our country forward and rebuild our infrastruc…
