State Representative Kim Pearson (R-Pleasant Hill) announced in a statement yesterday via email:

Serving Polk and Jasper County taxpayers is a tremendous honor and privilege.  While I am grateful for the honor, I have decided not to seek re-election to the Iowa House of Representatives at the end of this term.  I will continue to advance important conservative, constitutional principles through the new opportunities presented to me.  Whether through conservative issue advocacy groups or PACs, I will remain in the battle for liberty.

Jim Carley announced that he is running in House District 30.  Pearson’s announcement means that a Republican primary will likely be avoided.  His Democrat challenger is Altoona City Council member Joe Riding.  The new HD 30 includes: he Des Moines suburbs Altoona, Bondurant, Carlisle (the section in Polk County),  Elkhart, Mitchellville and Runnells.
