Due to redistricting, Iowa’s third district race is one of only two in the country featuring a pair of incumbents, Leonard Boswell and Tom Latham. 

Latham was first elected to Iowa’s Fifth Congressional District in 1994, but moved to the Fourth District because of redistricting in 2000. This will be Latham’s 10th term.

Latham is Iowa’s only member of the powerful House Appropriations Committee and currently helps operate a family-run seed company in Alexander, Iowa.
