John Deeth Blog: Miller-Meeks joins deja vu primary field

Excerpted from this post at John Deeth Blog

It's deja vu on the GOP primary ballot as three of the players from
2008 are facing off in a slightly different configuration in 2010. The
big news over this long holiday weekend (four days with no post is the
longest I've been off the grid in years) is Mariannette Miller-Meeks
announcing her second run at Dave Loebsack. To be honest, I was
expecting MMM to hold off until the map got redrawn. But I was wrong
there, so let's see what else I can be wrong about. Miller-Meeks was a
bit of a surprise winner in the '08 primary. The early frontrunner and
DC favorite was Peter Teahen, but he was greeted by grassroots
loathing as Teahen's donation to 2002 Democratic candidate Julie
Thomas became an issue. (The "donated to Dems" card is getting played
by Vander Plaats in the governor's race, as he points out Terry
Branstad's erstwhile support for Nebraska neighbor Ben Nelson.)
