URBANDALE, Iowa — A 5th-place finisher in the 3rd District Republican primary three weeks ago is now the party’s nominee.

Iowa Republican delegates on Saturday selected David Young as the 3rd District Congressional Nominee.

Back on June 3rd, none of the 6 Republican candidates cleared the 35% threshold to capture nomination.

So about 500 delegates met in Urbandale to vote on the nominee. After 5 ballots, delegates chose Young over Brad Zaun. Young finished 5th in the June 3rd primary.

Young says he was a bit surprised with how it turned out.

“Well you look at the odds, you look at the results from the primary, but at the same time delegates look through a different lens,” Young said.

“Of course I’m disappointed in what happened here today, but I congratulate David Young, and I’ll be behind him 100 percent,” Zaun said.

Young will face Democrat Staci Appel for the open seat in Congress with Republican Tom Latham retiring after this term.
