Ashley Hinson on Principles & Values

 

 


Getting started in Congress; considering run for Senate

Newly elected U.S. Rep. Ashley Hinson, a Republican in Iowa's 1st District, said during a December 2020 taping of Iowa Press that she had not ruled out running as for Grassley's seat if he were to step aside. "My priority right now is just getting to work. People hired me to do a job," she said. "... So I'm working hard to make sure I do my job that people sent me there to do."

Pressed to say whether she had ruled out the possibility, Hinson declined. "Well, I think there's a lot of things to consider," she said. "Like every decision I have to talk to my husband first. I've got kids to consider too. It's all part of the conversation, right, about any decision in life. And I'm not focused out two years from now, I'm focused on getting started in January."

Certify 2020 Presidential election as fully & fairly counted.

Hinson voted NAY blocking certification of the Electoral vote

Explanation of 1/6/21 Electoral Certification, by Emily Brooks, Washington Examiner:Sen. Ted Cruz and Rep. Paul Gosar led an objection to counting Electoral College votes from the state of Arizona, the first formal objection to state results in a series of moves that will delay the certification of Joe Biden as the winner of the 2020 presidential election over President Trump. Cruz is advocating for an `emergency 10-day audit` of election returns in disputed states. The usually ceremonial joint session of Congress that convenes to count and accept Electoral College votes will be put on hold as the House and Senate separately debate the objection.
