The 2006 Midterm Election
Here is the best election result in 2006...
Iowa's 2nd House District
Dave Loebsack (DEM) 51%
Jim Leach (REP)* 49%
100% of precincts reporting
From Newsmax: One of the biggest surprises of the night was Republican Rep. Jim Leach's defeat in Iowa after a career that spanned 30 years, losing to Dave Loebsack, a college professor making his first run for elective office. The two parties spent lavishly on television commercials in dozens of districts deemed competitive - but not that one.
Jim Leach, the sponge that put through the anti-poker/gambling bill at midnight on the Port Security Bill. This was completely unexpected and not on anybody’s radar, so I can only assume that it was revenge of the Iowa online poker players! Way to go!
