Republicans target Senator Beall
The Iowa Republican reports/announces that Ft. Dodge contractor Chris McGonegle is running against Democratic Sen. Daryl Beall next year in District 25.
The turf is roughly Webster, Calhoun and Greene counties. Beall took over the seat in 2002 when one-term Republican Mike Sexton (who beat Democrat Rod Halverson in 1998) didn't run. Beall expanded his winning margin from 58% in 2002 to 67% in 2006.
