Vote 2012: 2nd Congressional District Race Removed from Upset "Watch List"
IOWA CITY, Iowa - Iowa 2nd District Rep. Dave Loebsack got a bit of good news Friday when a national political handicapper left his race off the upset “watch list.”
Stuart Rothenberg of the Political Report wrote that he’s “been struck by a handful of races that I assumed I wouldn’t be watching at this point but that are now intriguing.” Even in cases where the favored candidate may win, he found them “worth watching.”
However, Loebsack’s race with Quad Cities attorney John Archer is not one of them, according to Rothenberg.
“Some folks (Democrats and Republicans) might put Rep. Dave Loebsack (D) in Iowa’s 2nd on the list, and his race bears watching. But what I’ve seen so far in polling doesn’t currently justify putting challenger John Archer (R) on the list of potential upset winners.”
