Scott Heldt, candidate for Iowa House District 20, is a hardworking, pragmatic progressive that will take on our toughest challenges to secure Iowa’s future.
Heldt grew up in Perry, Iowa with parents who taught him the value of hard work at a very young age. Starting at the age of 14, he baled hay, detasseled corn, worked as lifeguard at the local pool, and took out groceries, all while participating in numerous extracurricular activities at Perry High School. These experiences helped Heldt to learn the strength of building relationships throughout the community.

DES MOINES—Yesterday, State Senator David Johnson became the first Iowa Republican leader to abandon the Republican Party in response to Trump’s ““racist remarks and judicial jihad”. Johnson has served in the Iowa Legislature for 18 years and represents one of the most conservative areas of the state.
IDP Chair Dr. Andy McGuire released the following statement on State Senator David Johnson’s decision to switch his party registration from Republican to No Party:
“Republicans in Iowa and across the country should follow State Senator David Johnson’s lead. It’s not enough to call Trump’s remarks ‘inappropriate’ or ‘offensive’ and then say that you’ll be voting for him anyway. Trump’s racist rhetoric and divisive tactics have no place in our American political discourse. If you are an elected official who agrees that Trump’s racism is unacceptable, then denounce him loudly today. There are no more excuses.
“Governor Branstad’s statement that Trump is not a racist is blind partisanship. Senator Grassley’s willingness to let Donald Trump appoint the next Supreme Court justice is even more egregious and irresponsible after Trump’s attacks on Judge Curiel’s heritage. Donald Trump has clearly invoked racism as an integral portion of his campaign platform. It is Gov. Branstad’s and Sen. Grassley’s obligation as high-profile leaders of this state to denounce Trump’s offensive rhetoric and place their priorities with the good of our country over political posturing.”
