Senate District 3
Registration: D 9410, R 16356, N 13160, total 38958, R +6946
Incumbent: Bill Anderson, R-Pierson; holdover seat
won easily in 2010 when Ron Weick retired after being overthrown as
Senate GOP leader after one session. The new seat keeps south Sioux
City, but then wraps around the rest of the city to pick up most of
Plymouth County. As a result the seat gets a little more Republican.
House District 5
Registration: D 4134, R 9277, N 6954, total 20381, R +5143
Incumbent: Chuck Soderberg, R-Le Mars, unopposed
Democrat lost three to one in 2008, the last time Soderberg saw an
opponent. Soderberg loses more than 2000 Republicans in the new map, but
the seat is still solid red.
July 19 Campaign Finance Report: Soderberg for House
House District 6
Registration: D 5276, R 7079, N 6206, total 18577, R +1803
Incumbent: Ron Jorgensen, R-Sioux City, unopposed
freshman Jorgensen faced one of the highest profile primaries from
young conservative activist Matthew Ung, but won 56-44%. Ung seems like
to run for something again. Democrats made a game effort when the former
Chris Rants seat was open last cycle, but let it go this time.
Jorgensen gains a few rural townships and along with them a few hundred
