Kaufmann defeats Schwab for Iowa House

By Lori Lindner
Solon Economist
SOLON– A record number of Johnson County residents exercised their right to vote last Tuesday, Nov. 6.
The Johnson County Auditor’s office reported 91,383 registered voters in the county for this election, but that’s not a record; there were 92,222 registered to vote in the 2008 presidential election. This year, though, 82.58 percent of the county’s voters cast ballots, or 75,463 voters (compared to 73,231 in 2008).

Hawk Talk

After losing to Purdue on a last second field goal, 27-24, it’s going to be a long shot that the Hawkeyes will be going to a bowl this year.
Their last two games are at Michigan and home against Nebraska... they will be big-time underdogs against both.
I’m going to do something that I have not done in my 11 years of covering the Hawks.
I’m going to second-guess the coaches. I’ve done that many times before but not in the paper.
