Cyclone Conservatives: The Battle for Control: United States Senate 2008

Excerpted from this post at Cyclone Conservatives

It has been over 6 months since I posted my novella on the upcoming
2008 United States Senate races. The post was so long, I thought I
would never finish it, but alas I did. I decided it was time to update
the outlook on the Senate races since we have a little more clarity as
to where the races are headed in terms of challengers and incumbents…
Iowa: Tom Harkin. Oh, I wish we could send Tom and Ruth off into the
sunset of the Bahamas (where their residence is). But alas, we have
yet to recruit a top notch candidate. I've written a few posts about
this race in the past so check out the archives. We know we're going
to see Steve Rathje and Bob McDowell in a Republican primary for sure.
Businessman Bruce Rastetter and former Vander Plaats campaign manager
Troy Cook have been floated. Congressman King has no doubt looked at
the race and Democrats seem convinced that Tom Latham is going to run
after Jane Norman of the Register wrote a story about Tom moving to
Ames but we all know that is old news and Norman is just a year behind
in the times.
