Iowa, once a classic blue-leaning battleground state (it went for Obama handily in 2008 and 2012), is moving toward the GOP and particularly Trump because of its high concentration of conservative white working-class voters and its small minority population. Yet the winners and losers in California's most competitive races could take days to sort out given the state's unique election laws. He can win.

Dennis Daugaard, won the Republican nomination for the at-large U.S. House seat; he'll probably avoid putting the seat at risk against Democrat Tim Bjorkman, whereas a further-right nominee might have made things more interesting.
