Heartsill, Sinclair, Rozenboom and VanderLinden win

(Continued)

Marion County —

Guy VanderLinden will represent Iowa House District 79. His opponent, Chris Wilson, has moved out of state and would have been unable to serve, even if elected. VanderLinden's margin of victory was 10,769 to 4,168. A message was left for VanderLinden as well. 

The races for Marion County offices were settled in the primary. No Democrats sought the County seats up for election.

Jim Kingery received 11,691 votes and Mark Raymie received 9,925 votes in the supervisors' election. Both will serve, as there are two open seats. 

Jake Grandia will remain Marion County's Auditor. He received 13,667 votes.

"I appreciate the support people gave me and I'll do my best," Grandia said. Grandia has also overseen today's election and reported no problems. 

Jason Sandholdt will be Marion County's Sheriff in January. Sheriff Ron Goemaat is retiring at the end of the year and did not seek reelection. 

"I'm excited and looking forward to the future," Sandholdt said. He is eager to serve the people of Marion County, to do the best job he can and he thanked everyone who helped his campaign. 

"I've had a great career with the Department of Natural Resources," Sandholdt added. One of his top priorities when he takes the Sheriff's Office will be tackling the issue of drugs in the county, especially among youth. 

Republicans won in Marion County who ended up losing their respective races. Presidential candidate Mitt Romney won Marion County, though he lost Iowa and the race to Barack Obama. Congressional candidate John Archer received more votes in Marion County than Dave Loebsack, but Loebsack won. 

Marion County voters also voted to oust Supreme Court Justice David Wiggins, 9,394 to 5,744, but statewide, voters chose to retain him. The other justices on the ballot will also be retained.
