Bleeding Heartland: Zaun also will run against Boswell

Excerpted from this post at Bleeding Heartland

Next spring, Iowa's third Congressional district will see its first
competitive Republican primary in some time. State Senator Brad Zaun
of Urbandale told CQ Politics today that he plans to run against
seven-term incumbent Representative Leonard Boswell. Zaun said he will
formally announce his candidacy sometime after December 1.
Earlier today, The Iowa Republican blog reported that former Iowa
State wrestling coach Jim Gibbons is quitting his job at Wells Fargo
to run for Congress against Boswell. One of the previously announced
candidates, Dave Funk of Runnells, indicated in this comment thread
that he will stay in the race. Until this week, Funk and Pat Bertroche
of Clive were the only confirmed Republican candidates against
Boswell. Zaun was just re-elected to the Iowa Senate in 2008, so he
won't have to give up his seat in the upper chamber if he loses the
GOP primary or the general election.
