Rep. David Loebsack’s (D-Iowa City) surprising retirement announcement has changed the southeastern Iowa political equation. Thus, no one has immediately come forward to run for the House. Yesterday, however, state Sen. Kevin Kinney (D-Oxford) confirmed that he is considering entering what is now an open seat race. Same for Iowa City local business owner Veronica Tessler (D) who has already filed a campaign committee with the Federal Election Commission.
The eventual Democratic nominee will be favored here, but we can expect crowded and competitive primaries in both parties.
