Iowa Legislators Make Campaign Announcements Following New Legislative Boundaries

The Iowa Legislature met in its second extraordinary session of 2021 to pass new state legislative and congressional boundaries for the next 10 years. The new maps were approved by overwhelming majorities in each chamber, even though 58 incumbents were lumped into districts with at least 1 other incumbent. Campaign and re-election announcements quickly flooded out following the passage of the new maps. The 58 incumbents who were lumped in with other incumbents now face the choice of competing in a primary, moving to an open legislative seat or retiring from the Legislature. The Iowa Bankers Association is tracking campaign announcements ahead of the 2022 mid-term elections. Explore which incumbent legislators have been drawn together and which legislators have announced either a retirement or a move to a new district on the IBA website.
