For those of you living in Iowa's 4th Congressional District (purple area of map), there has been a lot of announcements this summer.

Current US Representative Steve King (R-Kiron) has lost committee assignments over statements he's made, prompting Iowa State Senator Randy Feenstra to challenge him in a primary.  

But Sen. Feenstra is not alone. US Rep. King now is expected to face at least two other primary opponents: Woodbury County Supervisor Jeremy Taylor and Bret Richards, the former mayor of Irwin.

Feenstra has raised the most money of the Republicans in the race. He has given up the chair of the Ways & Means committee and will not be seeking re-election to the Senate. Taylor served one term in the Legislature from Sioux City from 2011 - 2013. He lost to Representative Chris Hall when redistricting put the two of them in the same seat. Richards is a retired military veteran who returned to the family business in Shelby County.

JD Scholten, the Democratic nominee for US 4 in 2018, announced that he will run again for the nomination in 2020. Scholten lost to US Representative Steve King by about 10,000 votes (50% - 47%).  Scholten is a former professional baseball player.
