Cedar Rapids businessman Steve Rathje has received the endorsement of Leon Mosley, former Co-Chair of the Republican Party of Iowa.
Rathje is hoping to represent Iowa's First Congressional District, a seat currently occupied by Democrat Bruce Braley, who has announced his intention to replace the retiring Tom Harkin in the Senate. With Braley vacating his seat in the House, that means an open contest for election 2014. Rathje is the first Republican to declare his candidacy, there's nothing official yet from the Democrat side of the isle.
The endorsement by Mosley is a powerful one, the man tells it like it is.
