Blum releases statement after falling to Finkenauer

DUBUQUE, Iowa (KWWL) – Rod Blum delivers his statement from election night after falling to Democrat Abby Finkenauer.

This is his quote from the night:

“It was a uniquely American opportunity for the son of parents who didn’t make it past the 10th grade to be elected to Congress— and it has been an honor to serve the First District.
Thank you to everyone on my campaign team for fighting for the values we believe so strongly in. I urge you all to continue to work to uphold our constitutional rights, protect the rights of the unborn, and combat government waste— I know I plan to do so.
My first vote in Congress was against the leadership of my own party: voting against then-sitting speaker John Boehner. I urge Abby Finkenauer to similarly prove her independence from big-donors and the leadership of her own party when she takes this same vote in Congress.”
