Bleeding Heartland: House district 90 results thread: Hanson wins!
Excerpted from this post at Bleeding Heartland
It's a nail-biter in Iowa House district 90. Democrat Curt Hanson
carried Jefferson County, which includes Fairfield. Republican Stephen
Burgmeier ran up a big margin in Van Buren County. ... Democrats will
retain a 56-44 majority in the Iowa House for the 2010 session. From
the Secretary of State's office: There were 8,046 total votes (I had
heard predictions that 6,000 to 7,000 people would vote in this race).
Hanson won 3,932 votes (48.9 percent), and Burgmeier 3,825 votes (47.5
percent). Click the link for the breakdown by county. Only four votes
separated the two candidates in Wapello County. Jefferson County was
the key for Hanson -- he led by more than 600 votes there, while
Burgmeier led by just over 500 votes in Van Buren County.
