Iowa State Senate elections, 2006

From dKosopedia

This article discusses elections for the Iowa State Senate in 2006. This year, 25 of the 50 seats will be on the ballot (all the odd numbers). Going into the election, the senate was split 25/25, so any net change will swing the balance of power.



There are five open seats (all with Republican incumbents), while four Democrats and three Republicans are uncontested.

This page was updated on August 18, 2006, and it includes all primary winners and independent candidates. It is still possible that some candidates will drop out. We have provided websites where we can; otherwise, contact info for every candidate can be found by downloading a PDF from the Sec. of State's Office: Iowa General Election Candidates List.

Bloggers Drew Miller and John Deeth have a good analysis of these races. So does MyDD.


Democrats gained five seats in the election, which means that the next Senate will have 30 Dems and 20 Republicans. They picked up four open seats in districts: 5, 9, 19 and 37, and Becky Schmitz beat incumbent David Miller in district 45. In district 41, wingnut David Hartsuch beat an incumbent in the primary, then barely held off Democrat Phyllis Thede by 51-49%.
