FILE - In this June 5, 2018, file photo Iowa Rep. Abby Finkenauer walks into The Smokestack after winning the Democratic primary in Dubuque, Iowa. An often-overlooked battle is under way across rural and working-class America where President Donald Trump’s coalition of blue-collar voters offers Democrats an alternate route to the House majority.
