First District Rematch

The race for Iowa’s First Congressional District is a re-match of two years ago with Democratic incumbent Bruce Braley facing Republican challenger Ben Lange.  In 2010, Lange lost to Braley by just two percentage points. 

Democrat Bruce Braley and Republican Ben Lange meet for a 2010 debate at Waverly's Wartburg College. The two face a rematch in a race for a newly re-drawn First District.
