Politically Speaking: Anyone for Barth or Litten?
Excerpted from this post at Politically Speaking
My post of Sept. 29 promised we'd return to unveil the full ballot for the Iowa governor race. The post on that date noted that according to the Zogby Poll, Republican Jim Nussle and Democrat Chet Culver "are locked in one of the tightest battles in the nation. With Green Party and Libertarian candidates sapping votes from both campaigns, this contest looks poised to go down to the wire." So who are the vote-sappers? Major research — OK, a quick look at the Iowa Secretary of State Web site on candidates listed on the Nov. 7 ballot — has determined them to be Iowa Green Party candidate Wendy Barth of Cedar Rapids, Libertarian Party candidate Kevin Litten of Cedar Rapids and Socialist Workers Party Mary Martin of Des Moines.
