WASHINGTON, D.C. (KWWL) – It was a historic day on Capitol Hill, with the swearing in of the 116th Congress.
Iowa Congresswoman Abby Finkenauer was among the 102 women to join Congress and released the following statement:
“I was honored to share this day with my parents and the people of Iowa’s first district, who taught me the Iowa values that I will fight for here in Congress. Quality schools, affordable health care, and serious investments in infrastructure are on the line. I am ready to get to work for everyone in the First District and to make sure the voices of those Congress has forgotten are heard loud and clear.”
Finkenauer represents Iowa’s First Congressional District. She beat incumbent Republican Rod Blum in November’s Midterm Election.
