Ragan lone Democrat to file in District 27

Three-term Iowa Senator Amanda Ragan (D-Mason City) is hoping to make it four following the announcement of her re-election campaign last week.

     Ragan, 59, was the lone Democrat to file for the June 3 primary election in Iowa Senate District 27. Her announcement expanded the total field of District 27 candidates to three, with Republicans Shawn Dietz, Hampton, and Tim Junker, Allison, both filing papers on March 12 for their party’s primary election.

     Ragan said she plans to ramp up campaign efforts in District 27 soon, which includes portions of Cerro Gordo, Franklin and Butler counties.

     “My intention is to get out there and meet as many people as possible,” she said. “There’s a lot of different people in the district, but really we’re all north Iowans.”
