State Representative Jim Van Engelenhoven says the congressional district maps are likely the best deal either party would have gotten. He says that while some people would certainly have liked to see another version, there is a better than 50/50 chance that any other map would have had more problems. He applauded the fairness with which the maps were drawn and says he’ll speak with his family about the results, which place him in a district now represented by Guy Vander Linden of Oskaloosa.
