State Senator Randy Feenstra (R) Quits Committee To Focus on Race Against Steve King, 4:04
State Sen. Randy Feenstra, R-Hull, announced today that he is stepping down as chairman of the Senate Ways and Means Committee. Feenstra says he wants to focus on running for Iowa’s 4thcongressional district. The seat is currently held by Steve King.
Feenstra made the announcement in a press release, saying the move was made "to allocate more time" to the congressional contest while saying he is proud of his work on the committee.
King, who has won eight terms, is also running for re-election. Woodbury County Supervisor and former state Rep. Jeremy Taylor, of Sioux City, and former Irwin Mayor Bret Richards are the other Republican candidates.
Feenstra was the first Republican to challenge King, entering the race in early January. He also has been the fundraising leader, bringing in four times the money as King in the quarterly reports compiling efforts through March.
The Iowa Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame's hundreds of inductee exhibits have been moved to a new and bigger space in Arnolds Park.
They can be found now in the same building that houses the Iowa Great Lakes Maritime Museum. Both museums are part of the entertainment complex in the park.
The Hall of Fame had been in the Roof Garden, an open-air complex next to the amusement park. The Roof Garden was demolished and is being rebuilt as part of the multimillion-dollar Restore the Park campaign.
The new Hall of Fame museum has three times more space than the old version for the photos, videos, and memorabilia from bands, musicians and radio personalities.
