Iowa Dem Celebrates Endorsements From Two Of The Least Effective House Democrats

Earlier this summer, Iowa Democrat Monica Vernon secured endorsements from two House Democrats in an unsuccessful attempt to intimidate her primary challengers.

In June, Vernon celebrated Rep. Dave Loebsack’s (IA-02) endorsement. But in 2012, the Des Moines Register ranked Loebsack as the least effective member of Iowa’s entire congressional delegation.

Vernon also secured an endorsement from Rep. Cheri Bustos (IL-17). But Bustos was recently ranked the 17th least effective member of Congress with an effectiveness score of 0 percent.

If Vernon is surrounding herself with Democrats like these, it demonstrates type of failed leadership she values and would bring to Congress.
