John Deeth blog: Rathje Tops Week's Candidate Filing

Excerpted from this post at John Deeth blog

Republican U.S. Senate candidate Steve Rathje is the first, and so far
only, candidate to file for Tom Harkin's Senate seat. While the
Senator, and Iowa's five U.S. representatives, have all signaled their
plans to seek re-election, none of the state's D.C. delegation filed
at the Secretary of State's office through the close of last week. The
only congressional candidate to file was Lee Harder, one of three
candidates expected to vie in the 2nd District Republican primary for
the right to take on freshman Democrat Dave Loebsack. There was
considerably more action in filing for state legislative seats.
