Iowa Gov. Branstad has primary challenger

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Five-term Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad will face a challenger in the June 3 Republican primary, and one Democrat has been disqualified from his party's race.

53-year-old Tom Hoefling of Lohrville collected enough signatures to appear on the Republican primary ballot. He will face Branstad, who is seeking re-election.

Meanwhile, the Iowa secretary of state's office determined that former Des Moines school board member Jonathan Narcisse did not meet the state's requirements to appear on the Democratic ballot. That would leave state Sen. Jack Hatch of Des Moines as the only Democrat running for governor.

Narcisse's campaign says it exceeded Iowa's requirements to appear on the ballot, and will challenge the secretary of state's decision.

The deadline to file signatures was 5 p.m. Friday.
