Daryl Beall (born December 11, 1946) is an American politician. He was the Iowa State Senator from the 5th District.[1] A Democrat, he served in the Iowa Senate since 2003, in Iowa Senate district 25 before Iowa's 2012 redistricting.[2] He received his A.A. from Iowa Central Community College, his B.A. from Buena Vista University, and his MPA from Drake University.

Beall served on several committees in the Iowa Senate - the Economic Growth committee; the Education committee; the Local Government committee, where he is vice chair; the Transportation committee, where he is vice chair; and the Veterans Affairs committee, where he is chair. He also serves on the Transportation, Infrastructure, and Capitals Appropriations Subcommittee.

Beall was re-elected in 2006 with 13,032 votes (66%), defeating Republican opponent Tom Sooter.[3]

On November 4, 2014, Beall was defeated by Republican Tim Kraayenbrink, 12,383 votes(55.8%) to 9801 votes (44.2%).[4]

Senator Beall's 2014 election loss came after being placed into a newly redrawn state senate district centered on his home town of Fort Dodge after the 2012 LSA legislative redistricting.[5][6] The redistricting rules effectively removed his previous Senate 25 district's voting majority Democratic constituency in eastern Webster and all of Greene county.[7] They were replaced with the larger Republican-majority counties of Pocahantas and Humboldt north of Fort Dodge, and Webster County to population balance the new Senate District 5, in which he had to run his re-election campaign.
