2nd Congressional District Race is Over

April 1, 2021

Former Iowa State Sen. Rita Hart has withdrawn her election challenge to Congresswoman Mariannette Miller-Meeks for the seat in Iowa’s Second Congressional District before the House Committee on Administration. Hart made her announcement Wednesday afternoon. Miller-Meeks won the race by six votes during the 2020 election. After county and state officials certified the results following a full recount, Hart announced her formal election contest, asking for a recount. In a published statement, Hart said she wishes Miller-Meeks all the best as she serves the people of Iowa as Congresswoman.
