Hubler to receive help from the Patriot Corps

by: desmoinesdem

Fri Sep 12, 2008 at 11:00:00 AM CDT

Senator Russ Feingold's Progressive Patriots Fund just announced the last group of U.S. House challengers who will receive help in the form of a "Patriot Corps" organizer assigned to work for the campaign.

Rob Hubler, who is taking on Steve King in Iowa's fifth district, made the cut. (The full list of Democratic candidates receiving Patriot Corps help is here.)

Make no mistake: this district is winnable. It does lean Republican, but Democrats hold 10 House districts that are at least as Republican as IA-05, and another 14 districts that are almost as Republican in terms of the partisan voter index.

I have a longer post coming soon on Hubler's path to victory, but for now I recommend that you read this excellent piece on the race by DemocracyLover in NYC.

You can contribute to the Progressive Patriots Fund here or directly to the Hubler campaign here.
