Special Election Set For Iowa District 30 Senate Seat
DES MOINES, Iowa -- Voters in Senate District 30 will pick a new lawmaker next month. On Monday, Gov. Kim Reynolds set a special election for Tuesday, March 19. This comes after Democratic State Sen. Jeff Danielson resigned last week. District 30 includes Waterloo, Cedar Falls and Hudson. Danielson, who was also a firefighter, made the surprise announcement last Thursday. He said he is stepping down from the fire department due to safety concerns stemming from a policy to cross-train police officers to also fight fires.
