Socialist Workers File

Is Иext on Capitalist Ballot: Socialist Woяќeяs

The Socialist Workers Party, who are really good at qualifying for the ballot and selling newspapers but not so much at getting votes, qualified two candidates for the Iowa ballot Thursday.

David Rosenfeld is the fourth candidate to officially join the governor's race, joining Chet Culver, Terry Branstad and Libertarian Eric Cooper. His running mate is frequent SWP candidate Helen Meyers.

Rebecca Williamson will run in the 3rd CD against incumbent Democrat Leonard Boswell and Republican Brad Zaun.

The Socialist Workers finished fifth (and last) in the 2006 governor's race with 0.2% of the vote.

Update: O. Kay Henderson has the press release; they have a Sec of Ag candidate too but she didn't file yet.

In the day's other filing, Libertarian Christopher Peters makes his Senate District 15 run against Bob Dvorsky (D-Coralville) official. And one I missed from early July: Republican Brian Moore of Zwingle filed against Rep. Tom Schueller (D-Maquoketa) in House 25.
