Julian Garrett(Indianola, IA) State Representative Julian Garrett (R-Indianola) was selected as the Republican nominee in a special nominating convention held Thursday night for Iowa Senate District 13.

“I am pleased to welcome Julian Garrett as the official Republican nominee for this upcoming election in Senate District 13,” Spiker said. “Mr. Garrett has proven that he is a hard worker willing to go out and meet the people of his district and I look forward to helping his campaign.”

The date for the special election was set for November 19 by Governor Terry Branstad.
