Reynolds resigns from state Senate seat

Lieutenant Governor-elect thanks constituents for opportunity, pledges to work hard as state's new lieutenant governor


(URBANDALE) – Lt. Gov.-elect Kim Reynolds today resigned from her seat in the Iowa Senate in order to focus solely on assisting Gov. Branstad's transition team.

Reynolds, who was first elected to Senate District 48 in 2008, thanked her constituents and pledged to work for them, and all of Iowa, in her new role as lieutenant governor.

"It has been a great honor to serve my constituents, and I thank them for the confidence they placed in me for the past two years," said Reynolds. "I am excited for this new opportunity to serve as your lieutenant governor, and will work every day for the people of Iowa in my new role."

Reynolds's Senate district is Iowa's largest geographically. It spans Adams, Clarke, Decatur, Montgomery, Ringgold, Taylor and Union counties.

A date for the seat's special election will be set by Gov. Culver.
