Iowa Senate Majority Leader Resigns


The majority leader of the Iowa Senate, Sen. Bill Dix, resigned on Monday, March 12.

Dix resigned from his Senate District 25 seat after videos of the married lawmaker kissing a lobbyist were posted on Iowa Starting Line, a left-leaning website.

Dix was up for re-election this year and ran unopposed in 2014.  Gov. Kim Reynolds has yet to call a special election.
