Rule: Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee: Zach Nunn Scrambles To Hide His Anti-IVF Record
WASHINGTON, May 19 -- The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee issued the following news release:

The Des Moines Register is spotlighting Zach Nunn's extreme anti-IVF record after he continues to disingenuously claim he supports access to fertility treatments. The truth is, he voted for a bill in the state legislature that could jeopardize Iowa women's access to abortion, birth control, and IVF.

Just the day before the Register published their story on his misleading claims, Nunn - desperate for a talking point to cover up his record - signed on to a "useless" and "disingenuous" resolution ... Show Full Article

Rule: Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee: Miller-Meeks Can't Cover Up Her Anti-IVF Record
WASHINGTON, May 19 -- The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee issued the following news release:

Mariannette Miller-Meeks continues to mislead Iowans on her record, claiming that, "no one, myself included, has sponsored, signed onto or advanced a bill in Congress limiting or prohibiting IVF. Yet, we have put forth resolutions for our support for IVF."

WASHINGTON, May 19 -- The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee issued the following news release:

Following last year's train derailment in East Palestine, out-of-touch extremist Kevin Coughlin is coming under fire for accepting thousands of dollars in campaign donations from anti-rail safety lobbyists.

A career lobbyist, Coughlin ... Show Full Article

Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee: George Logan Has Failed to Condemn Trump's Calls for Defunding Law Enforcement
WASHINGTON, May 19 -- The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee issued the following news release:

George Logan refuses to abandon Donald Trump despite the four-time indicted former president calling on Congressional Republicans to "defund the DOJ and FBI until they come to their senses."

This comes as no surprise, considering Logan's record proves he'd join his extreme Republican Party to work against the interests of law enforcement in Congress. In the Connecticut General Assembly, Logan voted against an agreement to increase police wages and hazard pay.

The border security plan is supported by two in three Americans, ... Show Full Article
