Politically Speaking: Denklau launches for Iowa 5th Congress

Excerpted from this post at Politically Speaking

Democrat Mike Denklau of Council Bluffs this morning launched his 2010
Iowa 5th District congressional candidacy here in Sioux City, on way
to stops in Council Bluffs and Des Moines. He drew a dozen people,
including Woodbury County Democratic Party officials Dave Somsky, Rick
Mullin and Eric Newhouse. It was the second time I.d met Denklau, who
gave a short kickoff speech before answering questions from myself and
the three city TV stations. Somsky said he likes Denklau.s youthful
enthusiasm -- he.ll turn 27 on Nov. 10. "He is serious about making a
change in western Iowa... The reason he came back to the district was
(Congressman) Steve King, all the right-wing comments," Somsky said.
