With the announcement that State Representative Jim Van Engelenhoven will not seek re-election in 2012 came the question of who would run in the newly formed 79th House District.

That question was answered Friday by State Representative Guy Vander Linden of Oskaloosa. Vander Linden spoke with KNIA/KRLS News and said when the new maps came out, he and Van Engelenhoven had discussions about the matter.

After his colleague’s announcement, Vander Linden decided he would run for the House in the new district that encompasses the northeastern portion of Marion County and the western half of Mahaska County.
