Current Gubernatorial Scoreboard
Bottom Line

Kim Reynolds became Governor of Iowa last May when her predecessor (Terry Branstad) resigned to become the U.S. Ambassador to China. Reynolds is seeking her own full term in November and has the early advantage. But, even with Iowa’s Republican lean, this could be a competitive race.
