John Deeth Blog: Democrat has big money edge in open House District 89

Excerpted from this post at John Deeth Blog

The Iowa House District 89 race, once again, features a young first
time candidate against an older contender with deep community ties.
But with the retirement of longtime incumbent Republican incumbent
Sandy Greiner, the parties have reversed roles. It's the Republicans
who have the young candidate with Jarad Klein, while the Democrats
have the older contender with Larry Marek. Marek rolled up a big fund
raising lead in the July 19 reports, with $14,924 cash on hand to
Klein's $3,131. But Klein is clearly a GOP priority, with his large
red and white signs on the highways of Washington County outnumbering
those for higher on the ticket Republican candidates.
