Bleeding Heartland: Who Should Run in Iowa's 4th District?
Excerpted from this post at Bleeding Heartland
Last month, Selden Spencer surprised many when he announced that he
would not run again in Iowa's 4th district. That left Democrats
searching for a candidate to unseat Rep. Tom Latham, who votes with
President Bush nearly 90% of the time. I know party leaders have been
asking different people about a possible run, but with no luck.
William Myers from Humboldt is an Iraq Vet who is considering a run,
but he is virtually an unknown among Democratic activists in the
district. Also, Kevin Miskell, who is Vice President of the Iowa
Farmer's Union, is considering a run, however rumors have it that
party leaders in Des Moines aren't jumping at him possibly running.
