Bleeding Heartland: Latham knows this will be a big Democratic year

Excerpted from this post at Bleeding Heartland

If you were a loyal Republican foot-soldier seeking re-election in a
state that's trending Democratic, where the Democratic presidential
candidate has a commanding lead over your party's nominee as well as a
much bigger ground game in your own Congressional district, you might
want to reinvent yourself. Late last week, Tom Latham did just that in
his first television commercial of this election cycle. You can view
the ad at Latham's campaign website. It focuses on a bill Latham
introduced to address the nursing shortage in Iowa. Judging from the
content of this ad, Latham recognizes that 2008 will be a big
Democratic year in Iowa. Neither the commercial nor the campaign's
accompanying press release (which I've posted after the jump) mention
that Latham is a Republican. Instead, they note that he authored
"bipartisan legislation" in a specific area.
