Politically Speaking: Hubler/King news

Excerpted from this post at Politically Speaking

Since the election is 14 months away, I'm surprised myself to have two
consecutive days with posts concerning Rob Hubler, but the Democratic
congressional office-seeker has announced a staffing move of note.
Sioux City attorney, former 14-year Iowa lawmaker and former Woodbury
County Democratic Party chairman Al Sturgeon has been named as
Hubler's campaign chairman today. Sturgeon has praised Hubler's
ability to take on Iowa 5th District Congressman Steve King in the
past, and did so again with this announcement. For those who think
Hubler upsetting the entrenched King in a heavily Republican district
is impossible, Sturgeon notes underdog Democrat Dave Loebsack (a Sioux
City native) took out three-decade Congressman Jim Leach in November
2006.
