2014 Iowa elections

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A general election was held in the U.S. state of Iowa on November 4, 2014. All of Iowa's executive officers were up for election as well as a United States Senate seat, all four of Iowa's seats in the United States House of Representatives, 25 (half) of the seats in the Iowa Senate, and all 100 seats in the Iowa House of Representatives. Primary elections were held on June 3, 2014.[1]

Governor and lieutenant governor

Incumbent Republican Governor Terry Branstad ran for re-election to a second consecutive and sixth overall term as governor.[2]

He was challenged in the Republican primary by Tom Hoefling, a political activist and the America's Party and American Independent Party nominee for President in 2012.[3]

State Senator Jack Hatch ran for the Democrats.[4]

In Iowa, nominees for lieutenant governor are chosen at party conventions. They then run on a ticket with the gubernatorial nominee. Incumbent Republican Lieutenant Governor Kim Reynolds is running for re-election to a second term in office.[5]

United States House of Representatives

All of Iowa's four seats in the United States House of Representatives will be up for election in 2014 and are contested.

Iowa General Assembly

The 25 odd-numbered Iowa Senate seats are up for election in 2014, as are all 100 Iowa House seats. As of the primary filing deadline for the two major parties, there are 11 Senate seats and 58 House seats that only have candidates from one party, though several of these seats have contested primaries.[32] These numbers are from the primary election candidate listing,[33] so do not take into account candidates nominated by third parties, candidates nominated by petition, or candidates nominated by a major party after the primary. Such candidates file during the general election filing period, which runs from July 28 – August 15, 2014..[34]
