Heaton Wins, Other Races Match State Results

Written by on June 4, 2014 in News

The most closely watched primary race in Henry County was the challenge to Republican Dave Heaton. Heaton defeated Ralph Holmstrom in Henry County and parts of Lee, Washington and Jefferson Counties for the chance to go on to run for re-election as state representative. Heaton will run without Democratic opposition in November. Incumbent supervisor Marc Lindeen was unopposed in the primary on the Republican side. Mary Hoyer was unopposed on the Democrats ticket. The two will face off in November for the open seat on the board of supervisors. Treasurer Ana Lair, Recorder Shirley Wandling and County Attorney Darin Stater, all Republicans ran in the primary without opposition. Democrats will not put up a challenge in November, either. Henry County voted with the rest of the state in the GOP Senate primary race, giving the majority of votes to Joni Earnst. There was no race on the other side as Democrats put their faith in Bruce Braley. Henry County also followed the state in choosing Terry Branstad as the Republican candidate for Governor and Jack Hatch as the Democratic candidate. Here in the second district Republican Mariannnette Miller-Meeks is set for a third run at Democratic incumbent Dave Loebsack.
