There was a special election in Iowa last week and it was a big one.
Not only did the Republican candidate win, he won with 60 percent of the vote, in a district that Democrats have held since 1992.
If you’re wondering why the media has pretty much ignored this story, the reasons should be obvious.

“Iowans have spoken loud and clear in these last two special elections about the direction we are taking the state,” Gov. Reynolds said in a statement.
“Jon has flipped a seat held by Democrats for decades,” House Speaker Pat Grassley, R-New Hartford, said in a statement. “This is further confirmation that Iowans are resoundingly rejecting the liberal policies coming from D.C. and influencing the Democratic Party in Iowa.”
Dunwell appeared on FOX News to discuss his victory.
This is great news for conservatives.
