John Deeth Blog: Dems hold 3 of 4 close races as Whitead, Wendt win in Woodbury

Excerpted from this post at John Deeth Blog

While recounts remain possible, incumbent Democrats appear to have won
three of the state's four closest races while losing one seat. In
Woodbury County, Democrats held on to win two tight House races. In
Iowa House District 1 incumbent Democrat Wes Whitead had 6,152 votes
and Republican Jeremy Taylor won 6,092. At the end of Election Night,
Whitead had a six-vote lead. In Iowa House District 2, incumbent
Democrat Roger Wendt had 4,709, ahead of Republican Rick Bertrand with
4,429. Whitead and Wendt were both showing up as losers for several
hours on Election Night due to delays in counting absentee ballots,
which leaned heavily Democratic across the state.
