Bleeding Heartland: National Republicans unlikely to spend heavily against Boswell

Excerpted from this post at Bleeding Heartland

Republicans are trying to recruit a strong challenger against
Congressman Leonard Boswell, and by the end of the year State Senator
Brad Zaun, former Iowa GOP head Mike Mahaffey, or perhaps some other
prominent figure will throw his hat in the ring. However, I continue
to believe that Iowa's third Congressional district will not be a
close contest next year, and I'll explain why after the jump. ... When
Republicans ran hard against Boswell in 2002, 2004 and 2006, the
National Republican Congressional Committee made significant
independent expenditures in the district. I can't see that happening
next year, not with so many more promising targets for House
Republicans.
