The closest House race in the nation appears to be headed to a recount, as Democrat Rita Hart plans to request a recount across the 24 counties in Iowa’s 2nd Congressional District. Hart trails Republican Mariannette Miller-Meeks by fewer than 50 votes, and the lead has bounced back and forth a few times in recent days as counties double-checked their returns. This is a race to succeed retiring Democratic Rep. Dave Loebsack, but it sounds like it will be a bit before we know whether the outcome will be a Republican flip or a Democratic hold.
