Krusty Konservative: Congressman Matt Strawn?

Excerpted from this post at Krusty Konservative
Chairman Matt Strawn has been very active in the past several months, especially since becoming the RPI's new Chairman. He's hired numerous fundraisers, a couple of full timers, a couple of part timers, and handful of vendors. He's brought on an experienced Executive Director, and added substantial beef to the communications division of the Party with the addition of Danielle Plogmann. He's tweeting, Facebooking, texting, posting videos on YouTube, and traveling extensively. But I've heard from some sources who tell me that Strawn has his eyes on a congressional seat…and intends to challenge Boswell and make a bid for Iowa's 3rd congressional seat, which is fine. We need aggressive candidates challenging the status quo, and Boswell typifies the status quo more than anyone. The question though is when? We need a candidate to step forward now, but he's the party chair. How would that work? If he waits until 2012 who knows what redistricting will do since Iowa is likely to lose a seat in congress.
