This is Matt Windschitl. As you might guess from this not-at-all-creepy family portrait, he wasn’t in attendance at the March For Our Lives last weekend. He’s #2 Republican in the Iowa House, and has consistently led the way on extremist pro-gun legislation for the state. He proposed a “stand your ground” bill for Iowa written by ALEC. He introduced a bill legalizing suppressors, aka silencers, that became law.
He won huuuuge in the 2016 election. Jan Creasman, a retired social worker who also chairs the county Democratic Party, is once again challenging him in this relatively safe Republican district in the heart of Steve King country.
