I worked for Congressman Boswell in 2002, and after an easy reelection campaign in 2004, he needs our help this time around. Congressman Boswell is a humble war hero who has represented his district well. He has also refused to get caught up in wedge issue politics and has stood up for the rights of women, racial minorities, and LGBT Americans. Boswell's wealthy, self-financed challenger is the current Republican leader in the Iowa Senate, and Republican swift-boat style attacks have already begun. If we're going to take back the House, we need to successfully defend the few vulnerable Democratic seats that remain, and this is a great place to start.
