The Iowa Republican: Gibbons wins over GOP heavy hitters

Excerpted from this post at The Iowa Republican

This evening, Denny Elwell is hosting a holiday party for Jim Gibbons' campaign for Congress. Gibbons is one of four official candidates who is seeking the Republican nomination in Iowa's third congressional district. Along with Gibbons, State Senator Brad Zaun, retired airline pilot Dave Funk, and retired architect Mark Rees are all competing for the opportunity to take on Congressman Leonard Boswell in the 2010 general election. Elwell, a commercial real estate developer, is a well-connected donor who has given to a number of Republican candidates over the years. The Elwell event will provide the first glimpse of how well Gibbons can raise money for his campaign. With the crowded primary field, donor money will be at a premium.
