Battleground Iowa: Eichhorn Cries Foul

Excerpted from this post at Battleground Iowa
As a commenter pointed out today, there is more drama brewing in GOP U.S. Senate primary. The Register (in an article that has been significantly cleaned-up from the mess it was this morning) is reporting that George Eichhorn’s campaign is threatening to go to court to stop IPTV from airing the taping of the Iowa Press interview with Christopher Reed, the candidate who won the race according to election night results. ... I’m with IPTV on this. As it stands now, Reed won fair and square, and has exceeded the 35% he needs to clinch the nomination. IPTV has offered to interview Eichhorn should the canvass show a different result, which could probably be arranged to be shown the Friday night of convention weekend. In my opinion, this kind of makes Eichhorn look a little petty… like the kid who’s too little to play in the neighborhood sandlot game, so he’s going to run home and get his mommy to come make the big kids let him play.
