Bleeding Heartland: High-profile showdown coming in Senate District 37

Excerpted from this post at Bleeding Heartland

Next year's campaign in Iowa Senate district 37 will be closely
watched statewide and may draw some national attention. Republican
State Representative Kent Sorenson has decided to challenge first-term
Senator Staci Appel instead of seeking re-election to Iowa House
district 74. The socially conservative Sorenson made a splash this
summer with his open letter imploring Senator Chuck Grassley to
provide "principled and bold leadership" to advance the Republican
Party platform. Appel is assistant Senate majority leader and chairs
the State Government Committee. Her husband is one of the seven Iowa
Supreme Court justices who unanimously struck down our Defense of
Marriage Act in April. ... My opinion on this matchup hasn't changed
since Robinson first discussed the prospect in May: Bring it on.
