Bleeding Heartland: Boswell is not vulnerable in 2010
Excerpted from this post at Bleeding Heartland
Yesterday Taniel at the Campaign Diaries blog posted about 68 Democratic-held U.S. House seats that could potentially be competitive in 2010. Iowa's third Congressional district is not on that list. IA-03 did not make Stuart Rothenberg's list of competitive House seats for 2010 either. The National Republican Congressional Committee released a list of 51 targeted Democratic-held House districts in January. Lo and behold, IA-03 is not on that list either. I realize that Boswell only won the district with 56.3 percent of the vote in 2008, but I don't hear any chatter from Iowa Republicans about recruiting a candidate to run against him. The focus is on the governor's race and the Iowa House.
