|

Incumbent Republican Gov. Terry Branstad coasted to victory over Democrat Jack Hatch on Tuesday night.

Branstad, who won a sixth non-consecutive term, ran a campaign that focused on his recent legislative achievements, including a substantial commercial property tax cut and new education spending. He raised millions for his re-election bid and welcomed big-name supporters like New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie to the campaign trail.
