Political Forecast: Fallon for Mayor?
Excerpted from this post at Political Forecast
... I've known for a while that Geri Huser has been thinking about a primary challenge. And from what I've heard from Boswell campaign remnants and staffers, there is no way that Boswell retires/gives up the seat unless he dies or is close to death, essentially. This basically forces Huser to wait or challenge him in the primary — either way, an uncomfortable position for those who like Boswell, but want someone younger and maybe less moderate (and Huser isn't exactly loved by certain parts of the Democratic party). Anyway, the big story coming from that little graf is the fact that Ed Fallon is considering a run for mayor of Des Moines. To the best of my knowledge, Frank Cownie's term as Mayor of Des Moines ends on January 1, 2008, essentially meaning that the race for mayor of Des Moines will probably launch this fall (and would be the kind of cheap, grassroots campaign Fallon is looking for).
