Incumbent State Representative Jim Van Engelenhoven of Pella will face a challenger in the Republican primaries later this year. Marc Held, who is also from Pella, filed candidacy papers earlier this week, according records kept by the Secretary of State. Held also challenged Van Engelenhoven for the District 71 seat in the 2008 election. Another Pella resident, Pat Van Zante, will be running for the same seat on the Democratic ticket. Primary elections statewide will be held on June 8th of this year.
