Constitution Party in 2nd CD Race

Constitution Party in 2nd CD Race
Libertarian Krutsinger files in House District 30

The filing pace picks up on the first day of the last week to file with the Secretary of State, and the 2nd Congressional District is now officially a three way contest.

Jon Tack of the Constitution Party is running from the right against Democratic icumbent Dave Loebsack and Republican Mariannette Miller-Meeks. Tack may represent a conservative alternative for Republicans unhappy with MMM's primary win. Libertarian Gary Sicard has also announced, but not yet filed.

Two Libertarians did file for the state legislature. Dustin Krutsinger makes his late June announcement official, filing today to run against Rep. Dave Jacoby (D-Coralville) in House District 30. In Ames, Tyler Pauly files in House District 46, held by Democrat Lisa Heddens.

In other activity today, Democrat Jon Murphy turns in the paperwork to oppose GOP incumbent state auditor Dave Vaudt. But we've known that since the June state convention where he was nominated.
