The Iowa Republican: Third District congressional primary gets crowded

Excerpted from this post at The Iowa Republican

Two years ago, Iowa Republicans struggled to find one candidate to
challenge Congressman Leonard Boswell in the general election despite
the fact that Boswell faced a primary challenge of his own. Now, as
many as five candidates are vying for the Republican nomination in
Iowa's third congressional district. The latest candidate to emerge is
Mark Rees. Rees, a retired architect, looks to be the moderate
candidate in the Republican primary. ... The addition of Rees to the
Republican field of candidates brings the number of candidates who
have filed the necessary paperwork with the Federal Election
Commission to four. Rees joins Dave Funk, Jim Gibbons, and Brad Zaun
as announced candidates, and Pat Bertroche has campaigned but not
filed with the FEC. The robust field of candidates provides
Republicans in the third district with a lot of choices when it comes
time to vote in the primary next June.
