New Iowa Map Pits Incumbents Against Each Other

File Photo
With Iowa losing a seat in reapportionment, it looks like Rep. Steve King will face a primary challenge to keep a seat in Congress.

Glover reported that if the first map is rejected, the agency has 35 days to prepare a second map, which also cannot be altered. He wrote that if that map is rejected, the agency has another 35 days to prepare a third proposed map, which can be altered. Finally, the Legislature has until Sept. 1 to give the map final approval. If that doesn’t happen, the Iowa Supreme Court will step in.
