Sheldon, Iowa — A Sheldon woman has announced her candidacy for the Democrat nomination for Iowa’s 4th District District seat in the U.S. House of representatives. That seat is currently held by seven-term Republican Steve King of Kiron.
Kim Weaver of Sheldon made her announcement at the Democrat’s Iowa Wing Ding Event, held Friday at the Surf Ballroom in Clear Lake. Weaver is currently serving as Chair of the O’Brien County Democrats, and is a member of the Democrat State Central Committee, and was a delegate to the 2012 Democrat National Convention.
Weaver is employed by the Iowa Department of Aging as a Long-Term Care Ombudsman.
Weaver is currently the only Democrat to throw their hat into the ring for the 4th District nomination to face King in the 2016 general election.
