JOHNSON COUNTY- After state and federal districts were redrawn following the 2010 census, Iowa lost one congressional seat. Due to Iowa’s slow-growing population, the state went from five U.S. representatives to four in the 2012 election.
In the Second Congressional District, U.S. Rep. Dave Loebsack has decided to move, after his home, and the rest of Linn County, were placed in the First Congressional District. Loebsack, a Democrat, will move from Mt. Vernon to Johnson County into the new Second Congressional District.
