On the Campaign Trail with Ed Tibbetts: Stewart won't seek re-election

Excerpted from this post at On the Campaign Trail with Ed Tibbetts

Iowa Sen. Roger Stewart, D-Preston, said this morning he won't seek
re-election next year. First elected in 2002, Stewart said he'd
planned on two terms and now will bow out. "It's not something that
came overnight," he said. Stewart, who is 78, says he'll keep busy at
a local bank and on his son's farm. He lists expansion of health care,
raising the minimum wage and balancing budgets as accomplishments.
There probably will be a number of suitors for the seat, which
includes the city of Clinton and parts of Clinton, Jackson and Dubuque
counties.
