"Another Democrat in office will mean more illegal immigrants will be living in Iowa.  I don't know why Christine Vilsack is endorsing this guy."
Looks like Jim Mowrer may be the official Democratic nominee to run against Rep. Steve King in Iowa's 4th Congressional District unless another candidate jumps in the race.

Former First Lady of Iowa, Christine Vilsack, who ran against King last year and received 44% of the votes, is endorsing Mowrer.  Here's her statement:

“Do I think he can win?” people ask. That’s the wrong question. The question is, “Should he try?” “ Vilsack said.

“I know first-hand that running against an incumbent is tough, especially in Iowa’s 4th District. I think my race showed that Congressman King is vulnerable, and his recent statements add to that vulnerability. The conversation in the next election must be about the kind of leadership that will increase economic opportunity in the district’s small towns and cities,” Vilsack said.

That's a good question:  Do you think Jim Mowrer can win or should he try?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
