(Des Moines, IA) This morning Republican Party of Iowa Chairman Danny Carroll announced that the Republican nominee for Iowa’s 3rd Congressional District will be decided at a special nominating convention held on Saturday, June 21st. The nominating convention will be held at Des Moines Christian School at 13007 Douglas Pkwy. Urbandale, IA 50323. Please note this is an update from a previous location. The nominating convention is now confirmed for Des Moines Christian School on the 21st. 513 delegates will represent the 3rd District and select the GOP’s nominee for the 3rd Congressional District.

“As no candidate received the necessary 35% share of the vote in the primary election, rules state that the party’s nominee will be selected at a convention whose date and location is set by the Chairman,” said Carroll. “Based upon a scheduling conflict with a previous location, we searched for a suitable facility and are quite pleased to now confirm the convention will be held at Des Moines Christian School in Urbandale on the 21st.”

The state party will be mailing out notices to delegates and alternates, informing them of additional details for the June 21st special nominating convention. Delegates will credential in between 8:30am-9:45am with the convention being called to order at 10:00am.
