Iowa Political Alert: Why Ashton Kutcher should run for Congress in Western Iowa

Excerpted from this post at Iowa Political Alert

Celebrity activist and new media pioneer Ashton Kutcher just beat CNN
in a race for 1 million followers on the Internet social networking
site Twitter. A suggested next challenge for the Iowa native: move
back to your home state - the western side, say Council Bluffs - and
run for the 5th Congressional District seat. As much as anyone in
America Kutcher has brilliantly blended fame with substance to create
an interactive organization that he's trained on fighting malaria and
child sex trafficking. An obvious new platform for the earnest Kutcher
would be a run for political office. And the place to do it would be
in heavily conservative western Iowa where U.S. Rep. Steve King,
R-Kiron, appears to have a Gordian knot on elections, anchored as he
is with an eye-poppingly reliable GOP vote in many northwest counties.
