Iowa Secretary of State Paul Pate ordered an “administrative recount” in Warren County. Results in this county won’t be available tonight, he said.

As of 12:40 p.m. Wednesday, here’s where the votes stand:

Incumbent Republican Crystal McIntyre led Democratic challenger Alfonso Valenzuela-Gumucio for District 2 Supervisor Warren County, 70% of the vote to 30% for Valenzuela-Gumucio with 75% of the precinct returns.

McIntyre, 52, lives in Milo and served for eight years on the Warren County Board of Supervisors.

A U.S. Army veteran, she listed her occupation as a wife, mother, and Warren County supervisor in response to a Des Moines Registry questionnaire.

McIntyre pointed to rising inflation costs as the biggest issue facing voters in his county.

She said her goals would include a specific mental health initiative, a five-year budget plan for all county offices, and managing storage processes and efficiency in the county.

Valenzuela-Gumucio, 55, lives in rural Carlisle. He grew up in Santiago, Chile, and holds a bachelor’s degree in hotel management with a major in sales and marketing.

Real estate agent and farmer, Valenzuela-Gumucio told the Registry that key issues include mismanagement of public funds, lack of transparency and lack of rural amenities such as supermarkets, health care facilities, day care centers and mental health services.
