Price of Politics, Etc.: Zaun to announce for Congress Thursday

Excerpted from this post at Price of Politics, Etc.

Add another name to the race for Congress. Republican State Senator
Brad Zaun will announce Thursday that he wants to take on 3rd District
Democratic Congressman Leonard Boswell. Zaun told me last month he was
thinking about running. Now, he's ready to say he's doing more than
just thinking. He will announce at 10am at Sellers Hardware in Des
Moines. Zaun worked there when he was growing up (his mother owns it
now). He later operated Zaun's Hardware in Urbandale as he started
transitioning into politics. The primary race is getting a bit crowded
now. Former National Guard pilot Dave Funk announced first. Then
former Iowa State wrestler and coach Jim Gibbons got in. Republicans
now have a three-way battle for the nomination.
