MASON CITY, Iowa- After winning the Democratic Primary for the 2018 Governor’s race, Fred Hubbell is introducing his running mate for Lieutenant Governor, Rita Hart.

Hart is from the Charles City area. She graduated from Charles City High School and started her higher education career at north Iowa Area community College.

She says several of her brothers are still in the area and she has family in Mason City.
