What's Inside

Iowa's musical chairs

Ever notice that we don't seem to have a shortage of politicians running for office? Despite the rigorous demands of the job and the constant scrutiny of the candidates' professional and personal lives, a number of gluttons for punishment continue to sign up for an opportunity for the job. Using basic supply and demand principles, one can quickly understand how decreasing Iowa's Congressional Districts from five to four will provide less opportunity for all who are interested and leave at least one standing in this political version of musical chairs. Two of the five sitting incumbents have moved to new districts, and the addition of former Iowa first-lady Christie Vilsack will add fuel to an already hot fire in northwest Iowa. In this week's cover story, we take a look at each race, detailing the strengths and weaknesses of the candidates and explaining the significance to Iowans.
