Lead narrows in Iowa's 2nd Congressional District recount


Undated) -- The recount in Iowa's 2nd Congressional district is nearly finished. Republican Mariannette Miller- Meeks has a 37-vote lead over Democrat Rita Hart. Twenty of the 24 counties in the district have completed a recount. The state canvassing board is scheduled to meet Monday, when results are expected to be certified.

The winner of the race will replace Dave Loebsack who is retiring after seven terms.

The outcome of the race has been in question since election night. At that time, Miller-Meeks had the majority of votes, but days later the the tide turned in Hart's favor, and later flipped again to Miller-Meeks.
