Weird candidates in Eastern Iowa
While searching for James Hill, I came across the Cedar Rapids Gazette's voter guide. Here, they have a listing for David Gochenouer, a Republican running for House Seat 34. Here's a link to the listing:
He lists membership in the NRA and the Iowa Pyrotechnics Association...does he look like the kind of guy you'd want handling guns and explosives?
And don't forget Wendy Barth, the Green Party candidate for Governor from Cedar Rapids. Although she's a nice person (I've met her), she's got glasses that could burn an ant colony to mush with the right angle of sunlight!
And while she's not in Eastern Iowa, Helen Meyers of the Socialist Workers Party, running in District 3, has some interesting things to say...uh, yeah. Sorry Helen, but as a farmer, I am not going to rush out and join you on the picket line calling for no limits to abortions, immigrants rights, and massive federally funded public works programs, even though you like lumping us with your commie labor unions.
