Iowa Progress: Republican Mutton In The First District

Excerpted from this post at Iowa Progress

In Iowa's First District, Republicans have nominated State Senator
David Hartsuch to run against Bruce Braley. Although Hartsuch is an
right wing extremist, he is relatively young and waged an energetic
campaign to oust incumbent Republican State Senator Maggie Tinsman in
2006. This might initially lead one to think that Hartsuch is trying
to wage a competitive campaign in a district that was represented by
Republican Jim Nussle until 2006. However, based on the Hartsuch's
anemic fundraising, he isn't even trying. According to Hartsuch's FEC
report, he has raised a whopping $5,000. However, Hartsuch's campaign
has been very frugal (as opposed to other long shot campaigns like
that of Ed Fallon) and still has over $4000 on hand.
