State Representative James Carlin of Sioux City is the choice of Republicans in Woodbury and Plymouth counties to run for the District 3 seat vacated by Bill Anderson.

Delegates chose Carlin, who is in the middle of his first term in the Iowa house, over Akron City Councilman Alex Pick by a 58 to 42 % margin at the special convention Monday night in Sioux City.

Carlin plans to start campaigning Tuesday for the special election to finish Anderson’s term that will take place December 12th:

OC…….to get it going. ;09

Carlin says he will campaign on the same issues that he feels helped get him elected to the Iowa house in 2016:

OC……..business climate. ;19

Each candidate gave a five minute speech to delegates before the vote Monday.

Pick tried to appeal to undecided delegates with a best of both worlds statement:

OC………..solution to this. :15

But the majority of the 47 delegates representing 22 precincts chose Carlin to face Democratic candidate Todd Wendt of Le Mars in December.
