Politically Speaking: Who might take on King and his 200K?
Excerpted from this post at Politically Speaking
There's news galore on the Iowa GOP gubernatorial race this summer,
most of it horserace who's-in, who's-out on a daily basis. The latest
is a poll commissioned by The Iowa Republican Web site, which shows
Sioux Cityan Bob Vander Plaats in the lead with 46 percent, which puts
him in front of "don’t know" (27 percent), Christopher Rants (14
percent) and Christian Fong and McKinley, with 3 percent each. A good
chunk of that lead for Vander Plaats could be chalked up to the fact
that he's been out working his candidacy the longest. But I'm instead
thinking a bit about the Iowa 5th District congressional race, which
is a yawner at this point. Incumbent Republican Steve King typically
holds his cards on whether he'll run for re-election until March of
the election year, even though it's been obvious he would run again
the last few times.
