Politically Speaking: Smith in for GOP, May bowing out
Excerpted from this post at Politically Speaking
We're seeing a period where candidates are settling on decisions to
run for the Iowa Legislature in 2010. A few days ago it was Sioux City
Democrat Rick Mullin announcing he'd run for the position to be
vacated when fellow city Dem Wes Whitead doesn't seek re-election in
Iowa House District 1. And Republican Jeremy Taylor of Sioux City will
almost certainly vie with Mullin for the spot in the general election.
Now, we learn from the Spencer Daily Reporter that Mike May, a
Republican from Spirit Lake, won't run for a fourth term to Iowa House
District 6. There's a Republican ready to fill the bill for the GOP,
as Okoboji banker Jeff Smith has declared his candidacy. In the piece,
May gives endorsement to Smith, like Whitead did for Mullin. Smith
wants to control "out of control" state spending.
