State Sen. Zach Nunn knocked off Democrat Congresswoman Cindy Axne for Iowa’s Third Congressional District on Tuesday. Nunn, who makes it a GOP sweep for Iowa’s congressional districts, currently holds more than a 2,100-vote lead.

“From Day 1, we’ve been a grassroots team of Iowans from all over the district ready to bring our Iowa values to D.C. We’re humbled and honored to have won our mission and are ready to bring change to our country,” said Congressman-Elect Zach Nunn. “We didn’t get into this race to win, we got into this race to serve – and after hearing directly from Iowans the last few months it’s clear we need to hit the ground running. Next year in Congress, top priorities will be to fix our economy, end the record-high inflation and massive government spending, and get our country back on track. We will work to secure our border, gain energy independence again, strengthen national security, and protect the freedoms given to us in the Constitution. It’s clear that Iowans have had enough of divisive, corrupt and power-grabbing politicians – with our win, we’re looking forward to serving Iowans and continuing to put service over self.”

Axne was a top target for Republicans nationally and couldn’t overcome the GOP popularity in Iowa.

Combined with the fact she voted for the Biden agenda 100 percent of the time, these recent flubs likely didn’t help:

Axne blasts ‘anti-vaxxer crazies,’ Christian right who uses religion like a ‘weapon’
