Republican David Young is the new Congressman from Iowa’s third district. He beat Staci Appel with 53 percent of the vote. Young says he will start working for Iowa on day one of his term.
“And you folks have the power to hire and fire,” he says. “I’m not loyal to any party leadership, any president, this group or that group. You’re in charge here. This is self-determination, you’re the boss.”
Young celebrated his victory just a few blocks from his home in Van Meter. He says his campaign staff made a huge difference.
