State Legislative Election Results

Iowa House of Representatives2014 Iowa State Senate Elections
BattlegroundRace.jpg

The Democratic Party devoted resources to winning back the House of Representatives in Iowa. House Minority Leader Mark Smith said that the party was "playing offense" and that it had recruited candidates "who fit the districts." He said the party's chances were bolstered because of unexpected Republican retirements and that the incumbents were a "vulnerable freshman class dominated by tea party members who have taken extreme positions." The Democrats also recruited more candidates for the House than the Republicans - 77 to their 69.[1][2]

Speaker of the House Kraig Paulsen, however, was optimistic that the Republicans would gain seats. He cited voter frustration with government in general and in Washington, and "thank yous" from voters for recent legislative accomplishments.[2]

Paulsen turned out to be right, at least regarding the House; the Republicans retained the House after the general election and gained seats.

The State Senate elections, where there was a closer split between parties, provided the Republicans an opportunity to make Iowa a state government trifecta. The GOP held the governor's office and the lower house. While Iowa had a Democratic trifecta as recently as 2010, there had not been an all-Republican government in almost 20 years.[1][3] The Democrats, however, retained the Senate in November.

If the Republicans were to have taken the upper house and hold onto the lower house, they would have been able to advance issues on their agenda, including eliminating a manufacturing tax and banning telemedicine abortions. Rural women in the state get access to abortion pills after approval from remote doctors through videoconference consultations.[1]

The Iowa House was one of 20 state legislative chambers noted by Ballotpedia staff as being a 2014 battleground chamber. The Iowa Senate is another. The House had a difference in partisan balance between Democrats and Republicans of six seats, which amounted to 6 percent of the chamber. All 100 seats were up for election in 2014, although there was only one major party candidate running for 54 of them.

In 2012, a total of 27 districts were competitive or mildly competitive. There were 18 districts where the margin of victory was 5 percent or less in the 2012 elections. Another nine districts had a margin of victory between 5 and 10 percent.

Elections for the office of Iowa House of Representatives took place in 2014. A primary election took place on June 3, 2014. The general election was held on November 4, 2014. The signature-filing deadline for candidates wishing to run in this election was March 14, 2014.

Following the general election, there was no change to the majority control of the Iowa House of Representatives. The Republican Party increased the number of seats held from 53 to 57. The Democratic Party sustained the four-seat loss, dropping from 47 to 43 following the election.

Incumbents retiring

A total of 11 incumbents did not run for re-election in 2014. Those incumbents were:
