Farmer and grocery store manager Ty Bopp announced his candidacy for Iowa House District 92 on Tuesday. 

Bopp is running as a Democrat to represent the district, which covers all of Washington County and the south east portion of Johnson County. 

“The residents of the 92 District deserve a candidate who’s going to fight for their interests, Bopp said in a press release. “With this district being heavily farmers and small businesses, that’s what I plan on accomplishing. Farmers and small businesses are the backbone of the Iowa economy and should be the main priority.”

The seat is open in the upcoming election since Rep. Jarad Klien, R-Keota, announced he won’t seek reelection. 

So far Washington Mayor Jaron Rosien, a Republican, has also announced his candidacy for the seat.
