Essential Estrogen: Newcomer or not, Miller-Meeks confident she'd do well in Congress

Excerpted from this post at Essential Estrogen

When political newcomer Dr. Mariannette Miller-Meeks squeaked out a
victory in Iowa's 2nd District congressional primary, a few Republican
eyebrows raised. None of those eyebrows, however, were attached to the
people who met the Ottumwa ophthalmologist and learned her story. When
considered in context with the rest of her life, the primary was just
one more challenge she met with planted feet. "I really had no desire
to be in politics prior to last year," Miller-Meeks said. "Nine years
ago, when I first began visiting Congress with the Academy of
Ophthalmology, advocating and addressing health care issues, I had a
wonderful rapport and relationship with the honorable [former
Congressman] Jim Leach."
