Looks like the 3rd District is stirred up a bit about this Leonard Boswell-Ed Fallon race. Polk Co Auditor Jamie Fitzgerald says turnout may approach 2006's level. Big deal, you might say? Well, it kind of is. In 2006 you'll remember we had the 3-way Democratic primary between Fallon, Chet Culver and Mike Blouin.
Is high turnout good for Fallon or Boswell? It likely depends where the turnout is. If Fallon turns them out in the Sherman Hill area, his home base, he could make this interesting. But if the heavy turnout comes elsewhere, could that be a sign it's a Boswell night?
