Warren and Madison County Democrats meet tonight to choose a nominee in the Senate 13 special election to replace the unlamented Republican Kent Sorenson. Former State Rep Mark Davitt is expected to be nominated to face Republican Rep.Julian Garrett in the November 19 election.

Tuesday is the special election in House 33, where House Dems leader Kevin McCarthy resigned. It's a solid Democratic seat and Des Moines city council member Brian Meyer is a heavy favorite over Republican Michael Young. Again: this election is two weeks before the city election and the district is entirely in the city of Des Moines; could those elections have been combined?

Sunday Bruce Braley, reflecting his statewide status, moves his annual "Bruce, Blues, & BBQ" event from Waterloo to Des Moines, at the IA State Fairgrounds. The big guests are
former Rep. Gabby Giffords and her husband astronaut Mark Kelly. Details: 
Sunday, October 27 at 1:00pm
Rastetter 4-H Exhibits Building 3000 E. Grand Ave. Des Moines, Iowa
