John Deeth Blog: Pettengill Bolts Dems
Excerpted from this post at John Deeth Blog
The big news under the dome ... was the defection of State Rep. Dawn Pettingill ... to the GOP. This raises several questions: ... How long ago was this planned? Was it before or after Pettingill started going to Democratic caucuses again, and what kinds of conversations was she having? Will she be giving back the $38,611 (43% of her fundraising) that she got in direct donations from the Iowa Democratic Party, not to mention any other money from disgruntled Dems?
