Popular Progressive: No election insurrections, but some squeakers

Excerpted from this post at Popular Progressive

Incumbent Democrat senator Tom Harkin may face unheralded Republican
challenger Christopher Reed who won 35.29% of the vote which is likely
to lead to a recount as Iowa law states the winner of a primary must
have earned 35% of the vote to be a party's nominee. In the 2nd
District, Republican congressional candidate, Mariannette Miller-Meeks
of Ottumwa squeaked by Cedar Rapids businessman Peter Teahen to face
unopposed Democrat Dave Loebsack in November. Miller-Meeks won her
race by under 100 votes. In other districts, Dem Bruce Braley, who was
unopposed in the 1st District, will face Republican challenger David
Hartsuch in November.
