GOP Flips Iowa House Seat

Republicans flipped a longtime Democrat stronghold when Jon Dunwell won a special election, becoming the first Republican to represent Newton in the Iowa state House in decades.

Dunwell defeated Democrat Steve Mullen by a 60 percent to 40 percent margin.

The Hill reports:

Dunwell is the second Republican to win a formerly Democratic-held legislative seat since President Biden took office, after a Republican won a state Senate seat in Connecticut over the summer.

“Community engagement is very important to me. Being out and among the people is very important to me. Giving everyone a seat at the table is very important to me,” Dunwell told the Newton Daily News as he watched the results roll in. “I have a conservative philosophy. My passion is for Jasper County and Iowa. The team that I work with is for the Republicans.”

Dunwell had lost a bid against state Rep. Wes Breckenridge (D) in 2020. But Breckenridge quit the legislature last month to take a job at the Iowa Law Enforcement Academy.

The longtime Democrat stronghold has been shifting to the right in recent years with Donald Trump winning nearly 60% of the vote during the 2020 election.

Well, if the R’s take the House and Senate in 2022, it won’t make any difference if JoeBama or Harryass is president.

IF THE TURN COATS RINO REPUBLICANS HAD BACKED TRUMP, HE WOULD HAVE TURNED THIS WORLD UPSIDE DOWN, IDIOTS LIKE PAUL RYAN AND MY KY. SENATOR HAD REALLY WORKED TOGETHER WITH TRUMP. NOW WE HAVE TO HAVE PEOPLE IN THERE THAT WILL WORK WITH HIM. OH HE CAN STILL GET THINGS DONE BY EXECUTATIVE ORDERS AND MAKE THOUSANDS OF MORE ATTORNEYS RICH SUEING TO TRY AND STOP HIM BUT THAT IS BETTER THAN NOTHING.

Hi Al, even you must know that your OBiden group of misfits cheated and defrauded their way in 2020. Trump easily had more legitimate votes and all the Dems know it too. Are you proud of that?

Where are the inditments for voter fraud?
In the 2020 election?
In the 2016 election?
You must be proud of that
I am proud that Joe made Trump butt hurt.
I did not vote for Joe, I voted against The Don.
I won

You lost.

It all depends if the establishment republican keep control of the party. If they do you win we lose.
I notice you have a distinct hatred for Trump. Is it just Trump or is it conservatives as well?
Do you believe that socialism is the answer to all our problems? Do you think Joe is doing a good job as president or do you just hate Trump?

Hopefully, this signals abandonment of the absurd policies shoved down our throats by America’s three stooges, IIC, Nanzi & Shmucky. If it catches on, our ship may turn but if they continue their slapstick through an entire term, the republic may be lost.

Soon we will be chanting to Pelosi and Schumer……
“WE FLIPPED SMUCK AND WITCH,
WE FLIPPED SMUCK AND WITCH,
WE FLIPPED SMUCK AND WITCH!”

INSTEAD OF “FLIP SMUCK AND WITCH” WE ARE CHANTING NOW!

And like the song states….”Just the two of them, we can fire them if we try….just the two of them oh how they’ll cry when we chant …….YOU’RE FIRED, YOU’RE FIRED, YOU’RE FIRED!

I can chant and keep it clean! I wish we all could and would begin to restore American values, character, morals, decency, uphold the laws of the land and turn our faces back to God before He turns His face away from America and us because if He does stop blessing our nation and us……it is only a matter of time before America falls, if and when He is done with us! Don’t deny and fool yourself……. you know the truth in your heart!
