Rod Blum wins House District 1 against Monica Vernon. 

A Republican, Blum is a software company owner and has served as for the US Representative District 1.  His key issues during his campaign included amending the Legislative Branch Appropriations Act, negotiating foreign affairs and recognizing bipartisan fuel and disagreeing with "President Obama's unconstitutional executive amnesty."

Monica Vernon released the following statement:

"It has been an honor to run as the Democratic nominee for Congress in northeast Iowa. I have met so many people who are just looking for a fair shot at a better tomorrow, and I remain committed to building an economy here in Iowa that is fairer for middle class families.  I congratulate Congress Blum on a hard fought campaign and know we will both work to bring our state and country together as we look towards the future."
