Dr. Frantz Whitfield Endorsement

As a preacher, I know considering others is a fundamental aspect of community. Melissa Vine embodies this principle, caring about your dreams and the opportunities available to you.

Undoubtedly, achieving greatness is a challenging endeavor, but commanding greatness is an even more formidable task. The political climate in Iowa has been disheartening, necessitating a candidate capable of tackling difficult issues to guide our great state toward a brighter future. It is with great pride that I endorse my friend, Melissa Vine, to represent the third Congressional district.

Melissa’s hands-on and approachable candidacy reflects her authentic passion for people. The assurance that she will advocate for Iowans in Washington reinforces my belief that we are on the path to reclaiming our dignity and decency.

Consistently, Melissa has demonstrated a profound understanding of the issues disproportionately affecting our community: economic inequality, access to quality education, and health care disparities. In a time of national division, Melissa actively strives to build bridges and create a space where every voice is heard and respected. This inclusive approach is vital for addressing the needs of our community through legislation and advocacy.

With Melissa, I see hope for a brighter future in Iowa. We can achieve victory by electing Melissa Vine in the primary and, subsequently, in the general election against U.S. Representative Zach Nunn.

I am Dr. Frantz Whitfield, and I wholeheartedly endorse Melissa Vine for Congress in Iowa’s third Congressional district.

Time to organize!

Rep. Elizabeth Wilson Endorsement

To move our state forward, Iowa needs a leader in Washington who shares our values. As a single mom of four boys, Melissa understands the economic struggles many Iowans face. We need a leader who understands personally what it’s like to face and overcome adversity. Take it from me: Melissa does.

Currently, Iowa Republicans hold all four Congressional seats and both chambers of the state legislature. We need a fighter like Melissa in Washington to have any chance of delivering for Iowa families.

Every Iowan feels the reality of complete Republican control. Whether it’s the rollback of reproductive rights and access to abortion, the expiring child tax credit leaving many families high and dry, or Governor Kim Reynolds refusing an estimated $29 million in federal food assistance for low-income kids – it’s not kind.

I know Melissa’s character. I know she will show up with the empathy to understand your problems, the responsibility to affect change, and the determination to make that change a reality.

I am exhausted by Iowa Democrats’ recent losses at the ballot box. We need a candidate like Melissa who can bring a new level of excitement to our voter base.

I feel it every day at the state capitol: Republicans are out to gut Iowa’s working families – families like Melissa’s, and yours.

I am proud to endorse Melissa Vine for Iowa’s third Congressional district, because she understands that access to safe and legal health care for women is adjacent to things like domestic violence, sexual assault, the gender pay gap, and a woman’s ability to return to work when there is such a shortage of child care options.
