John Deeth Blog: Brian White takes independent road in 2nd district
Excerpted from this post at John Deeth Blog
Brian White is trying to take a tough road to the House of
Representatives, but he believes it's the best route. The 31-year old
attorney from North Liberty, running in the 2nd Congressional
District, is trying to become the first truly independent candidate
elected to the House in more than 50 years. "Nothing has changed in
Washington" since Democrats took control of Congress in 2006, White
told Iowa Independent. "And I'm the type of guy that when things
aren't going right, you do something about it." White deliberately
avoids party labels, but he sees former 2nd District congressman Jim
Leach as something of a role model, and interned for Leach one summer.
So, would White describe himself as a Jim Leach Republican? "Well,
without the Republican part," he said.
