Washington County Attorney Shawn Showers is one of two nominees to replace Judge Dan Wilson of Iowa District Court 8A. Also nominated by the 8A Judicial Nominating Commission is Washington attorney Daniel Kitchens, the Washington County magistrate. Gov. Terry Branstad will appoint one of the two within 30 days.
Showers defeated incumbent County Attorney Larry Brock in the 2014 Republican primary election and Democrat Barb Edmondson in the 2014 general election.
Showers said seven people were interviewed Oct. 27 and he and Kitchen were notified later in the day that they were the two nominees.
