John Deeth Blog: Mr. Subliminal: Fallon's backhanded backing of Boswell
Excerpted from this post at John Deeth Blog
Ed Fallon fired up the I'M for Iowa email list Tuesday, saying he
plans to keep a campaign pledge and vote for his former primary
opponent, Congressman Leonard Boswell. So far, so good. Fallon has
been attacked in the past for a lack of party loyalty. A long-since
renounced Ralph Nader endorsement from 2000 became a major, perhaps
decisive, issue in his primary loss to Boswell. But then Fallon
continues. "The Des Moines Register's editorial board also recommends
supporting Boswell." He then includes a link to the "endorsement".
"Iowans deserve more from 12-year incumbent," blares the headline.
