Loebsack focus on middle class, jobs
As Iowa’s Congressional Districts were redrawn following the 2012 Census, three-term U.S. Congressman Dave Loebsack made the choice to pack his bags and move from his longtime home in Mt. Vernon to Iowa City to maintain residency in the state’s 2nd District.
Since the move, Loebsack has been challenged by Davenport Democratic primary rival Joe Seng and by his current Republican opponent and Bettendorf attorney John Archer. National political analysts have considered the 2012 race for Iowa’s 2nd Congressional District to be competitive and Loebsack has taken that to heart, visiting Jasper County more than 10 times since last year.
The 59-year-old Congressman was raised in poverty in Sioux City by a single parent. He attended Iowa State University, earning bachelor’s and master’s degrees before traveling to the University of California-Davis, where he obtained a doctorate degree in 1982. Loebsack was a career professor at Cornell College in Mt. Vernon, where he currently is a professor emeritus.
