The Iowa Republican: Des Moines Register lacks proof on Rants allegation

Excerpted from this post at The Iowa Republican

In the Sunday edition of the Des Moines Register, Jason Clayworth
wrote an article alleging that GOP gubernatorial candidate Chris Rants
left his peers with $200,000.00 in debt following the 2008 general
elections. In the last election cycle, Rants was the Republican leader
in the Iowa House and was in charge of implementing the campaign
strategy to return Republicans to a majority party. However, there are
some major problems with the Des Moines Register's story. First, Rants
told, "It's not true, I did not leave a
$200,000.00 debt." Second, the campaign disclosures filed with the
Iowa Ethics and Campaign Disclosure Board (IECDB) do not show any debt
following the 2008 election.
