    to represent your district and constituents?

    The new Iowa map puts King and the current 4th District representative, Republican Tom Latham, in the same district. But Latham says he'll move to the 3rd District to face Democratic Rep. Leonard Boswell.

    Moving to a new area is just not a good way to stay in contact with your constituents ... unless your priority is to serve another base.  And that is no way to actually be a Representative.

    I am still learning, but the teachers often suck.

      all GOPers should move to Wichita, where their leading constituent is based...

        can move to Bentonville, Ark.

        I'm sure there's a flaw in this plan, but it's not readily apparent now...
