Kelley, Sinclair and Heartsill all victorious in state Congressional races
Following the 2012 redistricting of Iowa's House and Senate districts, three seats were up for grabs in yesterday's election for voters in Jasper County. Both State House positions, recently renamed Districts 29 and 29, in addition to the newly-created Senate District 14 were all on the line as voters headed to the polls Tuesday.
Democrat Dan Kelley was elected to his second term in the Iowa Congress in House District 29 over Republican Gabe Swersie with 9,518 votes to Swersie's 5,920.
Kelley, who grew up in and still resides in Newton, has served on the Newton Housing and Development Corporation Board and the Newton Board of REALTORS, among other local coalitions. He most recently served as ranking member on the House Administration and Regulation Budget Subcommittee as a representative in the former Iowa District 41, prior to this year's redistricting.
