WASHINGTON, DC (April 10, 2018) – Following tonight’s victory by former Representative Annette Sweeney in Iowa’s 25th Senate District, Republican State Leadership Committee President Matt Walter issued the following statement:

“Republicans won their 20th special election this year tonight with the victory of Representative Annette Sweeney in Iowa’s 25th Senate District. Tonight’s victory highlights how Republicans are maintaining their historical high level of total control of twenty-six states, and the importance of Iowa in that success.  Congratulations to Senator-Elect Sweeney and Senate Majority Leader Jack Whitver for their hard work in this victory.”
