Ashley Hinson — just elected as Iowa’s next FIRST district congresswoman — has tested positive for Covid.
Hinson, who’s a Republican from Marion, says she feels great, but will quarantine at home until advised to do otherwise by her doctor.
Hinson took the test as D.C. officials asked people coming from Covid hotspots like Iowa to get tested before taking the trip. Hinson will participate in this month’s orientation sessions for new House members virtually.
Her term in the U.S. House of Representatives begins in January.
