Meet the Candidates for Iowa House District 83 - Democratic Primary
State Representative Jerry Kearns (D-Keokuk) announced a couple months ago that his current term serving the southeast corner of Iowa would be his last. The district includes Keokuk, Fort Madison, and southern Lee County.
Three Democrats entered the race to replace Kearns: Jeff Kurtz (D-Fort Madison), Bob Morawitz (D-Fort Madison) and Michael Hardy (D-Keokuk). You can hear extended interviews with Kurtz and Morawitz below (Hardy informed TSPR that he has withdrawn from the race.)
The winner of the Democratic Primary on Tuesday, June 5, 2018 will likely face Jeff Reichman (R-Montrose) in the November General Election. Reichman is running unopposed for his party's nomination.
