Bleeding Heartland: Special election coming in Iowa House district 33
Excerpted from this post at Bleeding Heartland
State Representative Dick Taylor of Cedar Rapids announced his
resignation today, effective immediately, saying, "after 9 years in
the House, it's time for me to focus full-time on my family." Within
the next five days Governor Chet Culver will set a date for a special
election in Iowa House district 33. The race to replace Taylor will
lack the drama of the September 1 special election in Iowa House
district 90, because district 33 leans much more heavily Democratic.
In 2008, Taylor won nearly 70 percent of the vote against Republican
Kathy Potts. A district convention made up of Linn County Central
Committee members who live in Iowa House district 33 will select the
Democratic candidate for this special election within the next few
weeks. Bleeding Heartland readers familiar with Linn County politics,
who should replace Taylor?
