Iowa Democrat looking to flip seat back to blue brings in $1.3 million fundraising haul


A Democrat trying to flip a competitive seat in Iowa is going to have help from a huge fundraising haul. 

Lanon Baccam, a former official with the U.S. Department of Agriculture and first-time candidate, raised $1.3 million last quarter. Baccam is looking to flip Iowa’s 3rd Congressional District blue after Rep. Zach Nunn (R-IA) flipped the seat red in the midterm elections.
