Hinson was joined by Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas, the conservative firebrand and former and potentially future Republican presidential candidate, longtime Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa, Hawkeye State Gov.

Hinson represents Iowa’s 1st Congressional District, which covers the northeast quarter of the state and includes the cities Cedar Rapids and Dubuque. The former TV anchor narrowly defeated Democratic incumbent Rep. Abby Finkenauer last November and could face a challenging reelection next year, as the GOP aims to retake take the House majority they lost in the 2018 midterm elections. Republicans need a net gain of just five seats in the 2022 contests to regain the majority.

“I work hard for every vote, regardless of whether it’s Republican, Democrat or independent, because ultimately I know this is a swing district. It’s flipped back and forth several times over the last 10 years,” Hinson emphasized in a national exclusive interview with Fox News following the event.
