Leach leads Republicans for Obama in Iowa
Former Congressman Jim Leach is holding Republican’s for Obama events across the state this week. I have a couple of thoughts on this.
1.Outside of Davenport and Iowa City Leach doesn’t have much influence over the Republican electorate. It’s just a gimmick to garner news coverage. In fact many Republicans in Iowa City and the Quad Cities are pissed off at him, so his crowds might be rather small.
2.Anyone else find it odd that Leach is about to do more campaigning than he ever did for himself. Leach refused to do anything in his reelection campaigns, and never really helped other candidates on the ticket. Now he is actually working against our candidates running for the state house, state senate, and Dr. Miller-Meeks who is seeking to knock off Dave Loebsack.
