- Dallas County, Tom Latham
Both men are running for senate seats from separate districts.
Because of redistricting, Congressman Latham, an eight-term Congressman, plans to run against Leonard Boswell in Iowa’s Third District, which includes Dallas County. Redistricting put him in the same district as Republican Steve King, so Latham decided to move.
Details on the house party fundraisers for Mullen of Waukee and Chapman of Urbandale are on the press release below

Congressman Tom Latham Campaigns for Local Candidates
Dallas County, IA – Congressman Tom Latham will be the special guest at two DallasCounty fundraisers for Iowa Senate Candidates this week. The Congressman will be speaking at a fundraiser for Jake Chapman, Senate candidate District 10 on Monday, January 9th in Adel, Iowa. The following day, Congressman Latham will be speaking at a fundraiser for Jeff Mullen, Senate candidate District 22 on Tuesday, January 10th in Waukee, Iowa.
“What a privilege it is to have Congressman Latham at our house party,” said Jeff Mullen. “Congressman Latham has faithfully served the people of Iowa and in the midst of one of his toughest campaigns he is still willing to take the time to support my campaign…that is truly a great example selfless leadership.”
“I am honored to have Congressman Latham at our house party,” said Chapman. “To have the Congressman, who has a tough election of his own this year, willing to come help our campaign, is evidence of how much he cares about this great state.”
Due to the redistricting process that takes place every ten years, Iowa’s Congressional district boundaries will change. Because of this change Tom Latham will be running for Congress in Iowa’s new Third Congressional District, which includes Dallas County.
