Potential Candidate for Governor Wants Iowans to Find Common Ground

Siouxland Public Media/Sheila Brummer

Democrat Deirde DeJear formed an exploratory committee in a potential quest to run for Iowa Governor in 2022.

The activist and small business owner, who ran for Secretary of State in 2020, told the Des Moines register she is analyzing the political and fundraising landscape to ensure a true path to victory. Part of that exploration took her to Sioux City on August 4, 2021, where she met with a small group of local leaders and activists at Western Iowa Tech Community College.

DeJear listened to concerns facing people in Woodbury County and then stressed the importance of finding common ground as a way to unite Iowans.

So, far Governor Kim Reynolds hasn’t officially announced plans for re-election for November 2022.

Democrats Ras Smith of Waterloo has already announced plans to run. Smith is a state representative from Waterloo. Plus, Joshua Kuhn-McRoberts from Waukee, who works for the Iowa Finance Authority, and Kim West, an attorney from Des Moines. Also, in the race Independent, Robert Bond of Des Moines.
