DES MOINES (KWWL) -

A former Chuck Grassley staffer will now call the longtime senator a colleague instead of his boss.

David Young, a Republican, bested former Iowa Sen. Staci Appel for the right to serve in the U.S. House of Representatives for District 3.

Young held a comfortable 53 percent lead over Appel's 43 percent.

Young is a former staffer of U.S. Sen. Chuck Grassley. He worked there for seven years.

The U.S. House seat was vacated by U.S. Rep. Tom Latham, a Republican who began serving the district in 2013.

District 3 is the smallest of Iowa's four congressional districts geographically, but includes much of southwest Iowa and Polk County.
