Iowa for Feingold: Iowa State Senate Candidate Rich Olive wins "Pick A Progressive Patriot: Iowa" Contest

Excerpted from this post at Iowa for Feingold

US Senator Russ Feingold announced today that Iowa State Senate Candidate Rich Olive has won the Pick a Progressive Patriot: Iowa online voting event. Olive is challenging former Iowa Senate Republican Majority Leader Stewart Iverson to represent Iowa's 5th Senate District.

The announcement follows a week of online voting in this, the third "Pick a Progressive Patriot" event. The "Pick a Progressive Patriots: Iowa" event was the first time candidates for state office were featured for an online Progressive Patriots Fund vote.

As with past events, the Progressive Patriots Fund will financially support Olive - sending him a $5,000 check for his growing campaign. Feingold also said that the Progressive Patriots Fund will contribute smaller amounts to the five other featured candidates.
