Democrats Drop Effort To Overturn Iowa House Race And Unseat Republican

For the last few weeks, House Democrats have been considering overturning a close race in Iowa and unseating Republican Marianette Miller-Meeks, who won by just six votes.

They have since thought better of the idea and dropped it.

This is one instance where Republicans actually made a difference by speaking out.

Dem Rita Hart backs down in Iowa election challenge to Miller-Meeks amid mounting GOP pressure

Democrat Rita Hart has formally dropped her election challenge in Iowa to GOP Rep. Mariannette Miller-Meeks, just as Republicans turned up their public relations campaign against the potential election “steal.”

Hart officially lost Iowa’s Second Congressional District race in November to Miller-Meeks by just six votes. However, she had filed a formal election contest with the House of Representatives asking for a recount that included 22 ballots that were left out of the final tally, claiming she would have prevailed.

But amid a growing GOP-led campaign to quash the challenge and to pressure House Democrats to accept the election results, Hart formally announced Wednesday she will no longer try to overturn the election.

Hart’s announcement came the same day that GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy visited Iowa with Miller-Meeks demanding an end to the election contest, claiming the Democratic-led House was trying to steal away the election from Iowa voters…

“It’s the people’s house, not Pelosi’s House,” McCarthy said.

Lots of Republicans celebrated this decision.

Congratulations (again) to Miller-Meeks.
