Miller-Meeks Enters Congressional Race

First term State Senator Marianette Miller-Meeks announced today that she'll run for Congress in Iowa's Second Congressional District.  US Rep. Dave Loebsack, a Democrat, announced he will retire at the end of his term in 2020, opening the seat up.  Former State Senator Rita Hart, a Democrat from Clinton and former Lt. Governor candidate, has announced she will run for the seat.  Sen. Miller-Meeks, a Republican from Ottumwa, is an eye doctor and former Director of the Iowa Department of Public Healh.  She currently chairs the Senate Human Resources Committee.

Both face primary challenges; so far Osceola Mayor Thomas Kedley has announced he will run for the Republican nomination and Newman Abuissa of Iowa City and former US Rep. Bobby Schilling (who represented Illinois but now lives in LeClaire) will seek the Democratic nomination.  There may be more announcing (or dropping out) before the March deadline to file papers.
