Polk County Central Committee members who represent precincts in Ankeny and northern Polk County are gathering tonight to nominate a candidate for House District 37.
Jim Robidoux, an Ankeny educator, just missed reaching the 35 percent threshold to prevent the contest going to convention. Robidoux, the top vote getter, garnered 714 votes or 34.16% percent of the vote. His closest competitor was Matt DeVries with 623 votes, which equaled 29.81% percent of the vote.
The full results of the June 5th Primary are as follows:
1. Jim Robidoux, 714 votes, 34.16%
2. Matt DeVries, 623 votes, 29.81%
3. John Landon, 366 votes, 17.51%
4. Jeffrey A. Wright, 321 votes, 15.36%
