Dem Challenger Cindy Axne Defeats Incumbent GOP Rep. Young in Iowa's 3rd Congressional District

Democratic challenger Cindy Axne beat incumbent Rep. David Young in Iowa's third Congressional district after a tight race.

Axne, a first-time candidate and small business owner, went after Young for his vote in favor of GOP tax cuts law and the House GOP’s bill to repeal Obamacare.

President Trump and Vice President Mike Pence both participated in Iowa rallies last month to campaign for Young.
