There will be relatively small changes to the composition at the statehouse for the next General Assembly.

Governor Kim Reynolds was elected to a full term as governor.  Republicans will retain a majority in the House, but by a smaller margin.  With two potential recounts, it appears Republicans will hold a 54-46 majority in the House.  Republicans will expand their majority in the Senate, with 32 Republican seats to 18 Democratic seats.

Locally, Senator Jim Carlin won re-election to Senate District 3 (Morninside, Sergeant Bluff, central Woodbury and most of Plymouth County).  Jackie Smith defeated incumbent Rick Bertrand in Senate District 7 (the city of Sioux City except for Morningside).

Representative Tim Kacena won re-election to House District 14 (Sioux City westside and central), Representative Chris Hall was unopposed, Representative Jacob Bossman won re-election to House District 6 (Morningside, Sergeant Bluff and Salix), while Thomas Jeneary won the open House District 5 seat (most of Plymouth County along with central Woodbury).  Representatives Dan Huseman (representing Cherokee and O'Brien County) and Steve Holt (representing Crawford and Shelby Counties) were unopposed.
