Iowa Special Election Results Are In, GOP Flips Long-Held Blue Seat

Things are going horribly for Democrats.

A legislative seat held for decades by Democrats in Iowa is no longer blue.

Republicans flipped in red.

In the “Trump-hostile” state of Connecticut, Republicans won back a state senate seat.

This occurred in an affluent suburban where folks have been anti-Trump.

Here’s a quick review of the history of this Iowa seat:

“This district went (62/38) blue in 2012,” Townhall reports. “Then (51/38) in 2016.”

“It shifted back to deeper blue territory in the Democratic wave year of 2018, only to become a three-point squeaker in 2020,” the report added.

In yesterday’s special, Republicans won by a 20-point margin.

This is what change looks like:

Townhall’s Guy Benson mentions a few reasons for this swing:

Retirement alert. This sort of exodus – a voluntary farewell from a powerful chairman in a safe seat – often presages an electoral rout. The writing appears on the wall, and people start heading for the exits…

Democrats in disarray. The infighting continues. I think this massive spending push will still get done on some level, but the acrimony is real and ongoing. And you know it’s bad when the Democrats feel compelled to blame their allies in the press for their shortcomings.

How’s the Biden economy looking? Inflation, supply chain problems, worker shortages…

Crisis watch, with thousands of Americans still stranded in Afghanistan, we have this update on another disastrous front…
