Iowa Rep. Jeff Kaufmann will not seek re-election
Kauffmann, who was first elected to the House in 2004, is the current Assistant Republican Leader in that chamber. He said it has been a longtime goal of his to run for supervisor. He noted that one of the reasons he is not seeking another term is because he believes the legislature should not be a career.
In a letter he stated, “Bottom line: I believe and meant my rhetoric over the last eight years when I told you that my tenure is temporary and my next step would be to ‘come home’ and offer my services at the local level.” Iowa Representatives are elected for two years and are not term limited.
Kauffmann's son Bobby is considering a run for the House seat, but hasn't yet made a final decision.
