Jennings & Guth

Bob Jennings (left) and Dennis Guth are vying for the open Iowa Senate District 4 seat in the Nov. 6 election.

KLEMME — Political newcomer Dennis Guth, a Republican from Klemme, was elected to the Iowa Senate in the newly-created seat in District 4 Tuesday.

He defeated Democrat Bob Jennings, 51, Algona, by a margin of 15,950 votes to 14,204.

“I am excited to be able to promote the things that I hold dear, things like traditional marriage and the sanctity of life and smaller government that encourages job creation,” Guth said.

“At the same time I do feel the weight of the responsibility and I am looking to moving this state forward on some of the issues that have bogged down in the Senate in the past two years.”
