Reader ubu impersonator pitches for Cindy Axne in Iowa-03.
Axne is a totally viable candidate here in IA-3, and I think it could be a big year for Democrats in Iowa generally. The governor’s office is up for grabs this year, and I think there’s going to be a backlash against massive GOP overreach in the state legislature over the last two years—they’ve held the statehouse and the governor’s office, and have been working overtime bringing the religious fanaticism of Kansas and economic voodoo of Wisconsin to Iowa. It’s horrific.
How about some love for Cindy Axne, IA-3? She’s running against David Young, one of the weaseliest members of the GOP, in that he likes to cultivate a milquetoasty reasonability but votes with Trump even more often than Steve King (98% of the time to King’s 92%).
Axne cut her teeth in local politics by getting her school district to open all-day kindergarten to all students after discovering that the decision of whether a student got all-day or half-day was left up to a lottery. She’s worked in multiple capacities for the state of Iowa, runs a digital design firm, and is a tough, intelligent, and compassionate person—exactly what the district needs.
