REPORTER: Representative Finkenauer is quickly becoming known in Des Moines as a fighter for working people.
TOM TOWNSEND: Abby Finkenauer is always very hard-working in everything she does, 'cause she truly cares.
FINKENAUER: Do you step up for folks, or do you not? In the Iowa that I grew up in, we step up for each other. That is who we are.
TOWNSEND: And when she says it, she means it. It's not politics to her, it's real, whether it's workers' rights or safety or healthcare. She had our back in Des Moines. I know she'll have our back in Congress.
FINKENAUER: I'm Abby Finkenauer, and I approve this message.
