The Iowa State Education Association (teachers’ union) congratulated six Republicans who won seats in the Iowa House on Wednesday.
The ISEA is a prominent Democrat donor, giving $542,000 to the Iowa Democrat Party on their most recent disclosure report. In addition, ISEA gave Deidre DeJear $25,000 on that report.
Here are the six Republicans the Iowa Teachers’ Union is pumped to have return to the legislature:
ISEA made the following donations to Republicans before the primary:
$2,500 to Rep. Dustin Hite (lost his primary)
$1,000 to Rep. Megan Jones (won but didn’t receive a “congrats” post from ISEA)
$1,000 to Rep. Brent Siegrist
$500 to Rep. Brian Lohse
$500 to Rep. Jane Bloomingdale
ISEA has been a vocal opponent of banning mask mandates in schools as well as school choice for Iowa parents. They also strongly opposed the bill protecting women’s sports and the bathroom bill.
