Abby Finkenauer

Join Vice President Biden in supporting Abby Finkenauer

Meet Abby

Abby recently became the Democratic nominee in Iowa's 1st District, one of the top take-back opportunities for Democrats this cycle. If elected, Abby would be a new, energetic voice for Democrats in the heartland. Raised in a union household, Abby can appeal to all voters, including women, the working and middle class, and rural and urban residents. Democrats have recently focused on efforts to build the bench, and Abby’s campaign is a testament to those efforts. If elected, Abby will take a leading role in recruiting and mentoring young candidates across the heartland to cultivate up-and-coming leaders. As a state representative, Abby has the record of a true progressive. She has fought for: women’s rights, workers’ rights and LGBTQ rights.
