Loebsack wins fourth term representing southeast Iowa
DAVENPORT (AP) — Democrat Rep. Dave Loebsack has been elected to a fourth term representing southeastern Iowa’s 2nd Congressional District, beating Republican Bettendorf lawyer John Archer.
In his campaign, Loebsack stressed the need to create jobs and build a stronger economy.
Archer also focused on the economy, arguing that Loebsack and other Democrats were to blame for the nation’s slow growth.
In winning another term, Loebsack overcame changes to his district due to the once-a-decade process of redrawing lines based on census results. Redistricting removed Cedar Rapids from the district, but added Davenport.
