HawkeyeGOP: The 2nd District congressional race

Excerpted from this post at HawkeyeGOP

I must be living under a rock. I and every other Republican observer
in the district have known that we were going to have a three-way
primary between 2008 nominee, Dr. Marianette Miller-Meeks, 2008 Senate
nominee Christopher Reed and 2008 Senate primary 3rd place finisher,
Steve Rathje. I just didn't know that any but Rathje made mad it
official. ... The die is cast -- look for a spirited primary campaign
in district two. I have recently been talking with my high school age
daughter about her American history class. She is studying the
Articles of Confederation and the Constitution. It is interesting that
the issues facing the founders: a Bill of Rights, the role of the
Judiciary, the scope and reach of the federal government and many
others -- are still facing us today. Knowing the individuals involved
-- I am looking forward to the debate.
