Politically Speaking: Congressional candidate Chambers gets signatures
Excerpted from this post at Politically Speaking
It was just a formality, but Iowa 5th District congressional candidate Bob Chambers of Essex has gotten the necessary petition signatures to officially file nomination papers for the post held by Republican Steve King. Democrat Chambers met the requirement of getting 16 counties with 793 signatures. The 5th District is composed of 32 counties. Chambers noted he got a lot of signers from Carroll, Pottawattamie and Page counties, and takes that as enthusiasm for his campaign. Nomination petitions are to be filed with the Iowa Secretary of State office from Feb. 25 to March 14… As for King, he now has 30 days to file his nomination papers for either the congressional post or the U.S. Senate position some want him to pursue.
