U.S. House Of Representatives 2020 Election Results


On election night, The Associated Press called the race in Iowa's 4th Congressional District for Randy Feenstra.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., leads a 232-to-197 Democratic majority in the House heading into election night.

Democrats hope to keep, and possibly expand, their House majority in 2020 by riding a rush of anti-Trump sentiment surging in cities and suburbs across the country. Recent polls have prompted political analysts to shift a number of close House races in favor of Democrats, who have sustained a significant cash advantage this election cycle.

Republicans hope to win back some seats in 2020 by targeting the 30 Democrats representing districts where Trump won in 2016. Of those seats, 22 are held by freshmen Democrats who were part of the 2018 midterm wave that swept Democrats into power in the House.

In Iowa, there are four U.S. Congressional Districts. In Iowa's 1st Congressional District, representing Northeast Iowa, the two major party candidates are incumbent U.S. Rep. Abby Finkenhauer (D) and Ashley Hinson (R).

In Iowa's 2nd Congressional District, representing Southeast Iowa, Rita Hart (R) is running against State Sen. Marianette Miller-Meeks (D).

In Iowa's 3rd Congressional District, which includes Polk County and Southwest Iowa, David Young (R) is challenging U.S. Rep. Cindy Axne (D).

In Iowa's 4th Congressional District, which was Rep. Steve King's district, Iowa Sen. Randy Feenstra (R) is running against J.D. Scholten (D).
