The Iowa Republican: Kent Sorenson to challenge Appel in Senate race

Excerpted from this post at The Iowa Republican

State Representative Kent Sorenson has decided to give up the seat he
won in the Iowa House of Representatives last year and will instead
look to knock off another Democrat incumbent, Staci Appel. Sorenson's
decision to run for the Senate seat 37 sets up an intriguing matchup
which is likely to garner state-wide attention. In 2008, Sorenson
defeated State Representative Mark Davitt by 163 votes. Sorenson's
victory surprised many Republican insiders that year. Since his
campaign wasn't on their radar as a potential pick-up, Sorenson was
left to himself to orchestrate a winning campaign. With the help of a
dedicated volunteer base, Sorenson pulled off the upset of the night
when he sent Rep. Davitt home after serving three terms in the Iowa
House.
