held in Orange City, IA, at Northwest College, between Rep. Steve King (R) and Christie Vilsack (D).

There are several news articles, including this from the DesMoines Register, which notes now 3 polls showing a single digit race (a Republican poll has King up 7, compared to PPP at 3 and an internal Vilsack poll at 2), and reminds people that the district
covers northwest and north-central Iowa, including Mason City and Ames, as well as Sioux City and Fort Dodge. The district’s registered voters are 38 percent Republican, 27 percent Democrat, and 35 percent no party, making it the most heavily Republican of Iowa’s four new congressional districts.There is this report from the Courier, based in Waterloo and Cedar Falls, using a report from a Sioux City Journal reporter. From that I offer this snippet:
At one point, King made a reference to the U.S. secretary of agriculture, wondering where he stood on Missouri River flooding legislation. Vilsack's husband, Tom Vilsack, the agriculture secretary, was seated in the front row.For more news coverage of the debate, you can follow this google search.
"Congressman King, you are running against me, not my husband," Vilsack said,
Again, the district is heavily Republican by registration, but many of those used to be represented before redistricting by Tom Latham, who is far more moderate than Steve King. No matter how you slice it, Christie Vilsack is outperforming what one might expect from the registration numbers.
This is definitely a winnable race.
