2014 Voter Guide

2014 Voter Guide

In an effort to provide voters with information about the candidates in the 2014 primary elections, Iowa Public Radio staff contacted the Democratic and Republican candidates competing in Iowa’s open congressional races. 

Each of the candidates who responded to our inquiries was interviewed and asked the same basic questions.  We’ve provided their answers, and in some cases, the audio of those answers.  The complete interviews are also available.  Please note that none of the candidate claims have been fact-checked. Click on the candidate’s name to see the information, or scroll through the postings below.
