On the state level, Iowa Republicans will be choosing their nominee for U.S. Senator and those living in Iowa Congressional District 2 (including Henry County) will be selecting a November ballot candidate in a race between Dr. Mariannette Miller-Meeks, Mark Lofgren and Matthew Waldren. Candidates vying for the U.S. Senate nomination are Scott Schaben, Matt Whitaker, Sam Clovis, Joni Ernst and Mark Jacobs.

Iowa Republican Gov. Terry Branstad faces token primary opposition from Tom Hoefing.

Iowa is a closed primary state, meaning those residents registered as non-party must declare a party (Republican or Democrat) before being able to vote. They can switch their status back to non-party after the election.
