Constitution Daily: The elephant in the room

Excerpted from this post at Constitution Daily

Congressman Steve King is definitely the elephant in the room in any
Iowa state wide Republican primary discussion. As many of you know,
King looked at running against Harkin this year and opted to stay in
the U.S. House. We know he would have liked the fight against Harkin
but with McCain as the Presidential Nominee and with Republican
numbers declining, his best choice was to stay in the House. King is
the Republican Party's greatest asset and we need him working away at
the liberals. So which one is best for King and best for us? King is
facing redistricting in 2012 and there is no assurance what the new
district will bring. When Iowa goes to four districts, King may well
represent two-thirds of Iowa from Congress.
