Democratic state Representative Abby Finkenauer will unseat Iowa Republican Representative Rod Blum, winning a House seat in a district that President Donald Trump won by 4 percentage points in 2016.

Republicans had long considered Iowa's 1st District to be among the party's most vulnerable House seats. Democrats, meanwhile, considered Finkenauer to be among their party's strongest recruits this cycle.

During her campaign, Finkenauer argued that Trump's trade policies had hurt Iowa farmers, and she portrayed Blum as a rubber stamp for the president's policies.
