GOP Officially Flips Fourteenth Congressional Seat: A House Vote For President Would Now Be 27 Republican to 20 Democrat.

Matt Palumbo:

We reported four days ago that there were eight House races that the media hadn’t yet called, and Republicans were leading in every single one of them. … Despite the media having refused to call them, at the time of our reporting Democrats had already conceded in three of those races …

Last night Iowa officials made it official that Republicans had won Iowa’s 2nd congressional district, marking the GOP’s fourteenth congressional flip from the November elections. …

The seat was held by Democrats comfortably for nearly two decades, and Dr. Miller-Meeks clinched victory by just six votes.

Kat. H:

This Iowa house seat is of note because if the presidential election ends up in the newly-elected House of Representatives on January 6, with each state casting one vote, President Trump would then get the state of Iowa.

By my count the tally would be 27 states casting their vote for Trump, 20 for Biden, and 3 not being able to cast a vote because each of these states will have an equal number of Republican and Democrat House of Reps members. These three are Michigan, Minnesota and Pennsylvania. If the Dem had won in Iowa then that state would also have a split delegation and so would not be able to agree which candidate to vote for on Jan 6.
