Iowa's Special Election Spells Doom For Iowa Democrats
Last night, Republican Mike Bousselot defeated Democrat Andrea Phillips in a special election in Ankeny, one of Des Moines' fastest-growing suburbs.
Bousselot won by 3.28 percent in a swing, suburban district, a true toss-up that Democrats from across the country worked hard to win. Despite being outraised and outspent, Republicans pulled out a victory and even out performed Pres. Trump's 2020 margin - proving Iowans are fired up to support the GOP agenda. The race has national implications and is even more proof that Democrats' chances of victory in 2022 continue to look more and more dismal.
Voters across the country are growing more frustrated with Joe Biden by the day, and that played out in this special election. Biden has ignored the crisis at the Southern border, he has destroyed our economy, botched the exit from Afghanistan, and now wants to implement that largest tax hike in American history.
Iowans are fed up, but it's not only with Joe Biden. This race raises huge problems for all Iowa Democrats.
Cindy Axne, Abby Finkeauer and the rest of the Democrat ticket should be worried.
"As Cindy Axne and Iowa Democrats look to 2022 the message is clear: Democrats are doomed," said Republican Party of Iowa Chairman Jeff Kaufmann. "Iowans see how the Biden Administration is destroying America and they are making themselves heard at the ballot box. This race proves that even in the most toss-up of districts, Gov. Reynolds' and the GOP message of keeping Iowa moving and stopping the radical, out-of-touch policies of the left are what Iowans support."
