DCCC-backed loser enters race
Bob Salera | May 14, 2019

The socialist Democrats’ handpicked candidate made it official this morning as Rita Hart announced she will run for Congress in Iowa’s 2nd Congressional District.

Hart was last seen losing in her 2018 bid for Lieutenant Governor, continuing Democrats’ national trend of running retread candidates who have already been rejected by voters. Hart will face an uphill challenge in this open seat that President Trump won in 2016, as she’s forced to defend her party’s national platform of socialized medicine, the $93 trillion Green New Deal and anti-Semitism.

NRCC Comment: “Rita Hart just can’t take a hint. Iowans went to the polls and rejected Hart and her socialist policies last year, and no amount of interference from socialist Democrats in Washington is going to change their minds.” – NRCC Spokesman Bob Salera
