Bleeding Heartland: Quick hit on the Latham-Greenwald debate

Excerpted from this post at Bleeding Heartland

Becky Greenwald and Tom Latham just debated on WHO radio. Chase Martyn
liveblogged the event at Iowa Independent. I will have more to say on
this tomorrow after I listen to the tape again, but here are my
initial thoughts. There were no major gaffes, and both candidates
presented their cases well. Greenwald did a great job of staying on
topic and bringing up the relevant facts on a range of subjects. She
repeatedly mentioned his loyal Republican voting record, including his
many votes to continue the war in Iraq, and promised that she would
get to work for constituents right away. So, when Latham brought up
the bill he co-sponsored to deal with the nursing shortage in Iowa
(more on that here), Greenwald said it's a good bill and she hopes it
will get out of committee.
