IA-02 is a D+1 district encompassing most of SE Iowa, including Davenport and Iowa City.

Loebsack has been a good member of Congress. At least when it comes to Iowa, that is. He doesn't embarrass us like Steve King does on a daily basis anyway.

Zach Wahls, a Dem from Coralville (essentially Iowa City) has said he has interest in running for the seat. I'd like to think someone from over there with more experience would run. Wahls was just elected to the Iowa State Legislator last year.

At this point, I have zero faith in the Iowa Democratic Party to do anything that could accidentally result in an electoral win.

You do know they flipped 2 House seats held by republicans last election, right? Bonus: With women candidates.

I would have traded those two seats away to have had Hubbell beat Gov. Drunky McOWIerson though.

Nate Boulton got a fark job thrown at him for allegations of sexual assault. He reportedly grabbed some woman's ass in a bar when he was in college and some other woman made a big deal about it. Republicans demanded he bow out of the governors race. And, he did. Boulton would have cleaned Reynolds clock.

But the bonus here is, tax payers have paid for at least 3-4 republican members of the legislature's financial settlements with their accusers. As well as Gov. McOWIerson's best friend in government. That's right, taxpayers.

My money's on Davenport attorney Rock Lobster.

Loebsack was first elected in 2006, when he beat 15-term Republican Jim Leach in a race still recalled for its civility.

Iowa: The Canada of the US.

Wahls would be great. Young guy, compelling back story. As a college student, he made an amazing speech in defense of same-sex marriage. He is the son of a lesbian couple.

It was a rock Loebsack!

Yeah, I know who the guy is. I remember reading his story in the run up to the mid-terms.

But I'd like to have someone with more experience than 3 months a legislator represent the state. If nobody else decent comes along I could live with him, however.

When your Loebsack hangs too low it's time to retire.

Oh, was he formed in the mold of Tom Harkin?
