Essential Estrogen: House Challenger Thede Responds to Bite of the Political Bug

Excerpted from this post at Essential Estrogen

Phyllis Thede, a Democratic candidate for Iowa House District 81, is
just two years away from a close but disappointing bid for the Iowa
Senate, which she lost by just 436 votes. She says, however, it's that
campaign, despite its unfortunate ending, that has given her the drive
to try again. "When I lost the last time, it was a bit of a blow,"
Thede said. "But I think once you get bitten by this political bug,
you say to yourself, 'Hey, you know what? I know I can do well as a
representative of Iowa.' "I developed lots of ideas when I ran last
time -- ideas on how I could serve the people of Iowa. I don't want to
let those ideas go. They need to happen because there are too many
things that Iowans and our state need."
