John Deeth Blog: Sorensen vs. Appel

Excerpted from this post at John Deeth Blog

...I guess that means Sorenson isn't going to primary Chuck Grassley.
Yep, Sorenson is that breed of Republican, a "Chuck Grassley's too
liberal" type. So he'll no doubt be running against Justice Appel as
much as Senator Appel. (And as we saw in House 90, people have lots of
stuff other than gay marriage on their minds.) This could also mean a
comeback attempt by Democrat Mark Davitt, who Sorenson knocked off in
a 2008 upset. ... Recall that in 2008 the Iowa GOP scuttled a lot of
other efforts at end game and concentrated on the House, the only
thing the felt they had a shot at winning. In the early stages of
2010, it looks like they're throwing everything they have at the
governor instead.
