Cyclone Conservatives: Senator Mulder Changes Course, Decides To Throw In The Towel
Excerpted from this post at Cyclone Conservatives
Moderate Republican Senator Dave Mulder, who announced in early December that he would seek a second and final term to the Iowa Senate, reversed course yesterday by announcing that he would instead retire after first being elected in 2004. I cannot say that I am all that surprised or that I am all that disappointed. Regular readers of this blog will know that I am not terribly fond of Mulder's knack for espousing a liberal voting record and bucking the party caucus position on several issues of importance to his constituents back home. Last week, I wrote a post highlighting several of Mulder's incongruities with his constituency and noted that I had been hearing rumblings for several months that Mulder could get primaried.
