CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (KCRG) - Iowa second district Congresswoman Marianette Miller-Meeks announced she will run for re-election.

Miller-Meeks made the announcement during a campaign rally Saturday in Iowa City attended by Arkansas Senator Tom Cotton. She then tweeted out a thank you to Sen. Cotton from inside Kinnick Stadium during Saturday’s football game mentioning her bid for reelection.

Miller-Meeks is currently serving her first term in Congress. She beat out Democrat Rita Hart by just 6 votes in the 2020 election.

Before that, she was the Director of the Iowa Department of Public Health, and a member of the Iowa Senate.

If lawmakers approve the new redistricting proposal - Miller-Meeks will represent parts of Eastern Iowa, including Waterloo and Dubuque.
