Of Iowa’s four congressional districts, we know two things for sure. The second district and fourth district will have new members of Congress. Second district Democrat Dave Loebsack is retiring after 14 years. Fourth district Republican Steve King is leaving after 18 years after Randy Feenstra defeated him in the June primary.

The fourth district has 39 counties, which more than the other three districts. It is largely the northwest part of the state but stretches across the state toward the eastern border, stopping at Chickasaw County, and it stretches south near Omaha.

Republican Randy Feenstra and Democrat J.D. Scholten hope to serve this district as the next congressman. Here is a key moment from their debate on WHO 13 when they had the chance to question each other.
