On the heels of 2016 and ’18 Republican nominee Christopher Peters saying that he won’t seek the open seat next year, another Republican took himself out of the political picture. Yesterday, state Rep. Bobby Kaufmann (R-Wilton) confirmed that he will not run for Congress next year. At this point, only Osceola Mayor Thomas Kedley is in the Republican field. Democrats feature former state Senator and Lt. Governor nominee Rita Hart. Others from both parties are expected to soon come forward to battle for the seat left open by Rep. David Loebsack’s (D-Iowa City) impending retirement.
