For District 44, which represents the Waukee area, Anna Bergman won the Republican nomination, taking 66.79 percent of the vote while her opponent, Travis Grassel, garnered just 32.92 percent. Bergman, a current Waukee City Council Member, will run against Kenan Judge, who was unopposed for the Democratic nomination. 

Dawson Mayor Breanna Morman will be the Democratic nominee for Board of Supervisors Dist. 1 after receiving 73.42 percent of the vote, defeating Ryan Morrison. She will go up against current Supervisor, Brad Golightly, who was unopposed for the Republican nomination. 

Current County Supervisor Kim Chapman will once again be the Republican nominee as he took 56.35 percent of the vote, defeating former County Auditor Gene Krumm, who took 25.79 percent of the vote and former DeSoto City Councilman Robert Greenway, who took 17.51 percent of the vote. 

After running unopposed in the Primary, Republican Chris Hagenow and Democrat Gregg Gustafson will face off against each other for Iowa House Dist. 19 this November. Republican Chuck Sinnard and current Dallas County Attorney Wayne Reisetter, a Democrat, also ran unopposed and will face each other in the November election for the County Attorney seat. 

Dallas County Recorder Chad Airhart and Dallas County Treasurer Mitch Hambleton both ran unopposed for the Republican nominations for re-election and neither will have a Democratic or Libertarian opponent in the November election. 

Current State Auditor Mary Mosiman, a Republican, will go up against Democratic challenger Rob Sand in the November election as both ran for their nominations unopposed. 

Current State Treasurer Michael Fitzgerald and Attorney General Tom Miller, both Democrats, will not have challengers for their seats this November as no candidates from the Republican or Libertarian parties ran in the primaries. 

The Primary races for Governor, U.S. House Dist. 3, Secretary of Agriculture and Secretary of State were still be tabulated statewide at the time of this report. 

All results are unofficial until canvassed by the Board of Supervisors at their next meeting on Tuesday, June 12 in Adel.
