Candidate Filing Deadline Complete; Pro-Business Legislators Retiring

March 19, 2020

The deadline for individuals seeking office for the Iowa House, Iowa Senate or a federal seat has come and gone, as we now turn our attention to the June primary. There are seven members of the Iowa Senate and 10 members of the Iowa House who are not seeking re-election or are running for a higher office. Pro-growth leaders stepping away from their current posts include former Speaker of the House Linda Upmeyer, former House Majority Leader Chris Hagenow, Chair of the House Commerce Committee Gary Carlson, former Chair of the House Transportation Committee Ashley Hinson, Senate President Charles Schneider and former Chair of the Senate Ways & Means Committee Randy Feenstra. It’s imperative that these key leaders are replaced by candidates running who prioritize pro-jobs policies. You can help ABI back candidates with these qualities by investing in IIPAC today! You can view a list of all the candidates running for office. Stay tuned for more election information as we get closer to the primary.
