DES MOINES — Iowa’s 43rd governor will take the oath of office for another term later this morning.

Republican Kim Reynolds — the first woman to serve as Iowa’s governor — has been the state’s chief executive since mid-2017. Terry Branstad chose Reynolds as his running mate in 2010 and she took over the governorship when Branstad resigned. Reynolds won a full, four-year term in 2018 and she was reelected this past November. 

Today’s Inauguration Ceremony starts at 9 a.m. in Des Moines. The governor will host an open house at the governor’s mansion at noon and a  reception at the statehouse starting at 2 this afternoon. Tonight’s Inaugural Ball in downtown Des Moines is scheduled to start at 7 p.m. 

You can hear live coverage of the inauguration from Iowa PBS starting at 9 o’clock this morning on AM-1300 KGLO and
