Register's Jane Norman is looking ahead to Harkin vs. ??? in `08 and drops this frightening concept:
Rep. Steve King emerged from the Republican bloodbath with 58.3 percent of the vote, the highest re-election percentage of any of Iowa's congressional incumbents (though down from 63 percent in 2004). Now he has to decide whether he wants to stay in the House, where he's likely guaranteed to keep his seat forever unless Iowa City is somehow redistricted into the 5th District, or challenge Harkin for his Senate seat.
I've been waiting for Democratic representation since the day redistricting took Dave Nagle away from me; don't even scare me like this!
