Iowa was called for President Donald Trump shortly after midnight giving him six electoral votes and taking him to 210 electoral votes in a tight race against former Vice President Joe Biden, according to Fox News.
It wasn’t the only win for Iowa. Republican incumbent Sen.Joni Ernst also held onto her seat against Democratic challenger Theresa Greenfield. The race was one of the most expensive in the nation, according to the Associated Press.
Ernst got a big shout out from Ivanka Trump on Twitter too.
Shortly before midnight Trump took the buckeye state of Ohio giving him an important win against former Vice President Joe Biden’s campaign that had vested time and effort in the state. Ohio has a significant 18 electoral count and the president led with 53% of the vote versus Biden’s 45% in unofficial results at 11:25 p.m. with about 5.5 million votes counted at the time, as reported earlier.
That’s a hugely significant percentage of voters and is setting the stage for similar wins across the nation late into the night. It also appears that the campaign’s push to conduct 14 rallies in three days across the most significant states is paying off in a big way.
Administration officials, along with Trump, his family and supporters are monitoring the returns from the White House on Election Day and it appears that it’s going to be a long night and even longer day tomorrow as the ballots are being counted.

Videotapes from Jan. 6 Committee Witness Interviews Vanish
Videotapes containing witness interviews conducted by the Democrat-led January 6 congressional committee have disappeared. The chairman of the House Administration oversight subcommittee, Rep. Barry Loudermilk (R-Ga.), expressed his apprehension on the “Just the News, No Noise” television show.
According to Loudermilk, all videotapes of depositions have vanished, raising questions about the preservation of crucial evidence. He argued that, under House rules, these tapes qualified as congressional evidence, especially since some clips were aired during hearings. Loudermilk contended that the tapes should have been preserved by the now-defunct Jan. 6 committee and its chairman, Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-Miss.).
Loudermilk’s revelation has broader implications, potentially impacting criminal trials in both state court in Georgia and federal court in Washington, where individuals, including former President Donald Trump, face charges related to the Capitol riot on Jan. 6, 2021. Notably, Trump’s legal team had recently requested evidence from the Jan. 6 committee but was denied by a judge.
The situation takes a further twist as Loudermilk disclosed that the J6 committee had sent certain evidence, such as transcripts, to the Biden White House and the Homeland Security Department. Shockingly, these transcripts have now been returned to Loudermilk’s GOP-led subcommittee almost entirely redacted, preventing the disclosure of their contents.
The lack of records regarding witnesses, their statements, and the extensive redactions have raised concerns among House Republicans. Loudermilk emphasized that these documents belong to the House and should not have been sent in such a heavily redacted form. The chairman questioned the motives behind the redactions, asking why a Democrat-run House was allowed to have unredacted documents while a Republican committee’s efforts were obstructed. This development adds another layer of complexity to the ongoing investigations into the events surrounding January 6, 2021.
