Bleeding Heartland: Republicans will play catch-up in Iowa House district 74
Excerpted from this post at Bleeding Heartland
Republican Kent Sorenson's narrow victory over State Representative Mark Davitt in Iowa House district 74 was perhaps the biggest upset in the state in 2008. The Democratic-leaning district includes much of Warren County, including Indianola and the Simpson College campus. Sorenson decided to run against Staci Appel in Iowa Senate district 37 instead of running for re-election to the House.
