Cyclone Conservatives: Iowa's First Female Member of Congress?

Excerpted from this post at Cyclone Conservatives

Somehow I missed Jane Norman's story in the Des Moines Register last
week about Dr. Mariannette Miller-Meeks, an Ottumwa physician, who is
considering challenging Iowa's ultra liberal congressman, Dave
Loebsack. Iowa is one of two states (I think, if I'm not mistaken,
Mississippi is the other) that has never elected a female Governor or
a female member of Congress. Democrats and media types have tried to
use this as a reason to vote for female candidates in Iowa in the past
as they've thrown such unelectable candidates like Joyce Schulte at us
in the past. I know the Des Moines Register likes to cite this often.
So, Miller-Meeks is certainly not a household name - yet.
