Iowa’s Most Ineffective Congressman Endorses Perennial Electoral Loser

On the heels of Ravi Patel’s decision to withdraw from the Democratic primary in Iowa’s 1st Congressional district, Monica Vernon secured the endorsement of neighboring Democratic Congressman Dave Loebsack (IA-02).

The Vernon campaign immediately promoted this “thrilling” endorsement, but “thrilling” isn’t the word to describe Loebsack. One must only go back to 2012 when The Des Moines Register ranked Loebsack as the least effective member of Iowa’s then-seven person congressional delegation.

Loebsack Endorsement

Democrats in IA-01 are likely ruing the fact that their best Democratic prospect is a two time electoral loser touting the endorsement of Iowa’s least effective representative.
