Don’t Look Now, But Iowa Just Went Red Too! – Watch
Somebody needs to get the attention of all the Democrats who are still raising glasses and toasting to one another after the election.
While they are declaring the post-mortem trend with the GOP and the failure to create the “Red Wave” so many feared, some Republican candidates are coming back for the win around the nation.
The race for Arizona’s governor could go red, and another seat in Colorado is on the verge of flipping red. There is also the seat in Iowa that just officially caused the Dems to see red.
Republican Zach Nunn unseated two-term incumbent Democrat Cindy Axne 50 percent to 49 percent, so now Iowa should be considered a Red State. Every Senator and congressional representative is a Republican.
The Associated Press called the race for Nunn Wednesday afternoon. Iowa’s 3rd District includes Polk and Dallas counties, as well as areas to the south and west.
Nunn went ahead and declared victory before the race was officially called. Nunn, a state legislator, won with 50.3% of the vote to Axne’s 49.7%, a separation of slightly more than 2,000 votes.
“We’re going to work with people not just across the aisle, but every Iowan who wants to make a dedicated move to make our state better — and by result, our country better,” Nunn said to a thrilled crowd.
His opponent conceded the race and said this to her supporters, “Representing Iowa’s Third Congressional District has been one of the best opportunities of my life and I hope Zach Nunn understands the responsibility of this office and will continue my hard work to uplift Iowans’ voices in Washington, D.C.”
Despite how the Democrats are gloating, apparently, abortion and Biden’s accomplishments were not the winning combination they were said to be. Not for Iowa at least, and maybe Arizona and maybe Colorado. Certainly not Florida.
