On the Campaign Trail: North to Alaska

Excerpted from this post at On the Campaign Trail with Ed Tibbets

Jeff Giertz, the spokesman for U.S. Rep. Bruce Braley, D-Iowa, says
he's taking a leave of absence for a few months to go work for
Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama in Alaska. That Braley
would let him go may say something about how competitively he sees
state Sen. David Hartsuch's challenge. Giertz was a familiar face in
the 2006 campaign against Mike Whalen. Iowa's 1st District is on the
Democrats' safe list, this isn't all that surprising. Hartsuch also
filed 2nd Quarter financials that showed him raising $16,655 for the
year, far short of the $640,000 Braley raised through mid-May.
