Price of Politics: Steve Rathje for Congress
Excerpted from this post at Price of Politics
Steve Rathje is apparently thinking about trying again to make his way
to Congress. Rathje failed to win the Republican primary last year to
earn the right to take on Tom Harkin for his U.S. Senate seat. Rathje
confirmed to me he is forming an explorating committee to look at
running for the 2nd Congressional District seat currently held by
Democrat Dave Loebsack. I remember Rathje as the one Republican
candidate who declined to appear in the Polk County Republicans'
senate primary debate last year on Iowa Public TV that was televised
statewide. This week Rathje sent out this message to friends on the
Facebook website: "We've formed the exploratory committee and I am
focused on bringing you the most useful information that I can to
ensure that you are the most informed voter you can be."
