Bleeding Heartland: We have a candidate in the fourth district

Excerpted from this post at Bleeding Heartland

At the Jefferson-Jackson dinner on Saturday I was pleased to meet Bill
Maske of Truro (Madison County), who is running against Representative
Tom Latham in Iowa's fourth Congressional district. I don't know
whether there will be a contested Democratic primary; I didn't see
stickers or campaign literature for any other Democrat looking at this
race. ... Latham is generally considered a safe incumbent after
beating Becky Greenwald last year by 20 points in a district Barack
Obama won. Still, it will be important to have a Democrat out there
highlighting Latham's bad votes. In 2012, Latham will either be thrown
into the same district as Steve King or, more likely, will have to run
in a new third district containing Polk County. We can't afford to
leave him unchallenged next year.
