Garrett Julian.Garrett@legls.iowa,gov. Primary Election Iowa requires a candidate in a primary election to receive at least 35% of the votes cast to become the party's nominee.At least one candidate nearly always does that. This year, as you probably know, none of the six Repub- licancandidates for the U. S. Congress in Iowa's third district received the required 35%. As a result, the del- egates from the third district to the Republican state con- vention will select the Republican nominee at a special convention in Creston June 21. The vote totals were close enough that I believe most of the candidates can make a case that they should be selected. To get the nomination, a candidate will have to receive more than 50% of the Though Iowa has used this procedure to select party candidates who fail to get the required 35%, for as long as I can remember, some believe a different system should be used. A number of states require a candidate to receive more than 50% of the primary votes to be nominated. If none does that, they then have a runoff where the vot- ers choose between the two candidates who received the most votes. This is the situation this year in the State of Mississippi, where no candidate received 50% of the vote in the Republican primary for the U.S. Senate seat. There will be another election where the voters will choose between the two candidates who received the most votes in the primary. The winner will be the Re- publican candidate for the U.S. Senate in Mississippi. A drawback with this system is that it discriminates against a candidate who finishes a Close third'. You can prob- ably generate some debate asking friends which pro- cess they believe is better. Meaningless Political Trivia If you want to stump your political friends, ask them whichcandidate received the most votes in Warren and Madison Counties in the just conduded primary elec- tion. They will probably be surprised to learn that it was theirRepubliean candidate for State Senator.
