Do we miss the multi-cornered Republican primary debates? No? Well, 10 candidates on stage in Waterloo Tuesday, in a forum covering all the Black Hawk County races. The UNI Dems take a shot at Senate candidate Matt Riesetter's remarks; also coverage from the Courier and Patch.
And six on stage in Marshalltown: House District 71 candidates Mark Smith and Allen Burt, District 72
candidates Dean Fisher and Nathan Wrage and Senate District 36
candidates Steve Sodders and Jane Jech.
The QCTimes looks at a couple more Scott County races: House 93, where two term Democrat Phyllis Thede has a challenge from Libertarian turned Republican Mark Nelson, and House 97, where late-starting Dem Ted Whisler is challenging five term GOP Rep. Steve Olson.
