Iowa State Rep. to run against Rod Blum

DUBUQUE (KWWL) -

An Iowa State Representative has announced her run for Congress.

Abby Finkenauer (D-Dubuque) announced today that she will challenge Representative Rod Blum in Iowa's 1st District in 2018.

"I'm running for Congress because Iowans need a fighter who is on their side, and who isn't afraid to take on out-of-state corporate interests drowning out the voices of the rest of us," said Finkenauer.

She will make stops in Cedar Rapids, Marshalltown, Waterloo, and Sherill this morning.

Congressman Blum made a statement this morning: "It's still way too early to be talking about the next election. I am 100% focused on reigniting this economy, fixing healthcare, and reducing taxes for working families across America." 

Rep. Rod Blum will also hold 4 town halls next week in Dubuque, Cedar Rapids, Cedar Falls, and Marshalltown.
