Miller-Meeks Wins Race for Iowa House Seat; Republican Pickup
(Bloomberg) -- Republican Mariannette Miller-Meeks beat Democrat and former state Senator Rita Hart by six votes in the race for Iowa’s 2nd Congressional District.
The victory by Miller-Meeks flips the southeastern Iowa district, which has been represented by retiring Representative Dave Loebsack since 2007, to Republicans.
Miller-Meeks, who is a doctor, Army veteran and Iowa state senator, had run for the seat and lost to Loebsack in 2008, 2010 and 2014.
