Politically Speaking: Hubler headway moves 5th into "watch" race

Excerpted from this post at Politically Speaking

Hot off his appearance today at U.S. Sen. Tom Harkin's Steak Fry, Rob
Hubler has placed himself in line for some national help. The
Democratic candidate seeking to unseat Iowa 5th District Congressman
Steve King, Hubler now has the attention of the Democratic
Congressional Campaign Committee. The 5th District race has been
deemed a race to watch by the DCCC, which means financial resources
could be arriving soon. Hubler's own internal polling of two weeks ago
shows he's not ahead in the race, but he likes how he fares on a
generic ballot. In a letter to supporters yesterday, Hubler noted only
campaigns "generating excitement in their districts and running strong
operations make the cut" for DCCC input. Hubler's campaign chairman
(former congressman) Berkley Bedell said the contest is a "winnable
race."
