Century of the Common Iowan: Selden Spencer Will Not Be Running in Iowa's 4th District

Excerpted from this post at Century of the Common Iowan

I received a letter from the Selden Spencer campaign saying that Dr.
Spencer will not be running for Congress in Iowa's 4th District.
Spencer cited personal and professional reasons for his decision. Dr.
Spencer had this to say in the letter... "This remains a crucial time in
our history, a time in which we struggle to regain the soul of our
nation..." In 2006, the deck was stacked against Dr. Spencer's attempt
to defeat Rep. Latham. Spencer entered the race late, he didn't get
much support from the state party (because they were already investing
in the 1st and 2nd districts and protecting Boswell's seat in the 3rd
district), and he didn't have any name recognition at all. When put
together, Spencer had a hard raising the money needed and a hard time
getting his name out there to voters.
