Miller-Meeks Wins GOP Nomination For US House

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) -- Mariannette Miller-Meeks, an Ottumwa ophthalmologist who headed the Iowa Department of Public Health, has won the 2nd District Republican primary in her third run for Congress.

The 58-year-old Miller-Meeks beat Muscatine businessman Mark Lofgren and Eddyville window manufacturing worker Matthew Waldren.

Miller-Meeks resigned from her position as director of the public health agency to again try to unseat four-term Democratic Rep. Dave Loebsack.

While campaigning, she has stressed her military career and experience in health care. She says both have given her a unique position to understand issues such as the treatment of service men and women at Veterans Affairs hospitals.

She favors cuts to corporate income taxes and a reduction in regulations.
