John Deeth Blog: Freshman Sen. Feenstra looking at state treasurer

Excerpted from this post at John Deeth Blog

The Iowa Republican is reporting, or trial-ballooning, that freshman
State Sen. Randy Feenstra is looking at a run for state treasurer next
year against Democratic incumbent Mike Fitzgerald. Is Sioux County,
the most Republican in the state (81 percent McCain, and even hapless
Senate candidate Christopher "Not Tom Harkin" Reed won) a reasonable
base for a statewide race? Feenstra "has been actively trying to raise
his profile ever since" coming to the Senate in January, write the IR.
He went to the state senate unopposed, in both primary and general,
when relative moderate (by Sioux County standards) Dave Mulder was
squeezed out after one term. It's a no-risk way for a mid-term state
senator to boost his name ID.
