This week on The Exchange, we remember a Woodbury County teacher who died from COVID-19. Cherie Dandurand taught at Woodbury Central Schools. She was the first teacher in northwest Iowa to die from the coronavirus.

This week on The Exchange we recap the June 2nd primary election.  The big takeaway is veteran 4th district congressman Steve King was defeated by State Senator Randy Feenstra of Hull.  Feenstra raised three times the amount of money King did and ws the only primary candidate to run television ads in Sioux City.

Chad Sheehan for Sheriff

In the race for Woodbury County Sheriff, former Sioux City police officer Chad Sheehan received a majority of the vote in the Republican primary.  Sheehan beat Major Todd Wieck, a 30-year veteran of department with 60% support.

Current Sheriff Dave Drew who decided to retire at the end of the year, originally endorsed Wieck in the primary.  When Sheehan announced his candidacy, Drew put his support behind Sheehan instead.

The Woodbury County Election Commissioner says the county Democratic Party could still chose a candidate to run against Sheehan in November.

Today we hear from the Democratic Senate candidates in Iowa and the Republican candidates for the sheriff's office in Woodbury County.  Voters are being asked to weigh in on these races on June 2nd.

Chad Sheehan and Todd Wieck are running for sheriff.  Theresa Greenfield, Kimberly Graham, Eddie Mauro and Michael Franken are running for the chance to square off with Republican Senator Joni Ernst in the general election this fall.

Woodbury County Sheriff's Office

When Woodbury County Sheriff Dave Drew announced plans to retire at the end of the year two Republican candidates said they want the job.  There is currently no Democrat running for the office.  However, the Democratic Party has until August to nominate a candidate for sheriff through a special convention.

The primary race is between retired Sioux City Police Officer Chad Sheehan and Todd Wieck a major with the Woodbury County Sheriff’s Office.  The two men will face off in a primary election on Tuesday, June 2nd against Todd Wieck.
